As I’ve been known to do, I take requests, and this screencast is an example of that practice. The question has been asked several times in the past about the look of my Quicksilver interface. There’s no special Quicksilver Foo that I’ve applied, as always, it’s just knowing where to look. So as the saying goes, ‘Teach a man to fish and feed him for a lifetime’ so shall I…Because teaching you how to Pimp Your Quicksilver is just as noble as teaching you how to feed yourself, right?

Oh, and the Fumo plugin is here.

  1. Man…good speech. You are indeed quite noble for this. ;)

    Nice job as usual. One note that the Menu interface doesn’t support the comma trick. Also I’d love to know the color values you use for the Bezel.

    Thanks nick, for actually doing that pimp my quicksilver screencast. Always looking forward to learn more about new stuff you put into screencasts (though not being able to get my hand on skitch sorta maked me grumpy ;-) ) keep it up!

  4. That’s it.

    The continuing pimping of Quicksilver has caused me to unsubscribe from your feed and never read the Apple blog again.

  5. Hey, Joost. Go easy on the guy. Quicksilver is great, and I for one am extremely grateful for the useful tips. If you don’t like the blog, then just stop reading it.

  6. I think Fumo is causing my QS some issues, and now QS won’t relaunch (yes, I restarted OSX).

    I clicked the install on the smoke-package w/o first installing the smoke-framework. Could this be the issue? How can I right this? I’m “slapping at the missing limb” right now…HELP!

    (Also, I couldn’t find the ‘Library/Frameworks’ folder. Is it hidden? How can I go about installing the smoke-fw?

    Thanks.

    Oh, and one of the things I LOVE about TAB is the Quicksilver installments! That’s not to say that this should be “The Quicksilver Screencast Blog”, just that it is one of the many topics (today being a great example) that I appreciate learning about here. Keep it up!

  7. Nice icon for the home folder. Mind telling us where we can get a hold of it?

  8. Ha, I started a blog post today on the interfaces of Quicksilver. It was inspired by the discovery of Fumo, which I’m actually quite liking.

  9. Great screencast, Nick. I too am curious as to the color values you use for Bezel, and I was wondering if anyone has had problems perorming the comma trick with fumo? I am using the non-smoking version because I have an almost three year old 1 GHz G4 iBook.

  10. Neeto screencast!
    I hope they redesign the preferences interface soon, it is so ugly!
