Feature highlights


Group related commands together and even "hide" commands behind other commands using namespaces.

Quick and efficient folder browsing

Type a backslash "\" to enter folders and view their contents. Navigate as far as you want, and then press Enter on the file or folder you want to open. Promptu even allows you to treat commands that open folders as if they were folders.

Intelligent sync across computers

Promptu works hard so you don't have to. Use Promptu's automatic list sync feature and eliminate the headache of keeping your commands on multiple computers up to date.

Commands can contain more than static instructions

Using Promptu's special dynamic evaluation language (ITL), commands can take parameters from the prompt and even execute and use results from external code!

Automatic error feedback

When building commands that use ITL, Promptu provides an automatic compiler in the command editor that alerts you of any errors as you type.
