# KRunner

Framework for Plasma runners

## Introduction

The Plasma workspace provides an application called KRunner which, among other

One application for this is the universal runner you can launch with ALT-F2.

This functionality is provided via plugins loaded at runtime called "Runners".
These plugins can be used by any application using the Plasma library. The
