Budgie applet to kill process/shutdown apps

#1

Wondering if there is a plan to add as budgie applet a process killer/shutdown apps as u use from gnome extension (https://extensions.gnome.org/extension/102/force-quit/)? Thx

Seems to be a reasonable use case. Would be very simple to implement - preferably a simple vala applet. Template could be our hello-world example - where the button just calls xkill

Assuming it would be a “ten minutes” applet, I made one. In practice however, it turned out to have a few unwanted side effects to just implement it like that. What does work however -and is shockingly simpel to set up-, is to setup a keyboard shortcut to run xkill. Then the cursor changes into an X, click the window to kill.
