Quick launch bar for Awesome WM

After switching from Gnome\KDE many Awesome newcomers feel the lack of mouse-operated controls (like desktop icons or quick launch shortcuts). This widget tries to satisfy their needs providing an ability to put iconed shortcuts on the taskbar.

Widget uses *.desktop files for specifying the shortcuts, so you don’t have to edit your configuration file in order to add another shortcut. Also, you can just give the widget your Desktop folder as the folder for shortcuts, and they all will appear at the taskbar without any additional efforts.
