Custom Commands

Many IDEs allow the users to create custom commands that can be run in their project. We should support this as well. For example, "Run make clean" could be a custom command that executes "make clean" inside the project tree. The developer may need to specify things like environment variables, and working directory for the command.


  • Specify a custom command to run "rm -rf *.o"
  • Specify if the command should run inside the runtime (Xdg-App, jhbuild, host, etc)
  • Specify environment variables for the command (CC=foo)
  • Monitor progress of the command (such as console output)
  • Cancel a running command
  • Activate command with keyboard shortcut
