    hey I’m really interesting in trying Varo !

    • Sounds great. Are you looking to centralize the location of all your tools. Or do you work in a studio setting and want to easily install plugins before launching applications? Just curious to know more 🙂

    I’m also super interested! Just sent you guys an email, hopefully I can get a download link.

    If this would allow me to centralize python scripts that would be quite useful in our studio.

    • Sure thing, I’ll be emailing you a demo link this weekend to try out.

    Hey, I am trying to centralize all my tools and to be able to launch app and task from one place. I also have a lot of snippets of python code that i’d like to gather there also.
    I am really looking forward to test Varo and to see what can be done with it.

    I am very interested in this tool. I’ve been looking for an easy and reliable shortcuts tool to rival Direct Folders.
