Floating Toolbar

The source code for the io.Connect Floating Toolbar is available on GitHub. You can use it as a template for creating your own custom toolbar.


The io.Connect Launchpad is available as a React Component on NPM - @interopio/launchpad-ui-react. You can use the component in your own apps and also modify it by passing different options. For more details, see the README file of the @interopio/launchpad-ui-react package.

Custom Toolbar

Once you have implemented a toolbar, you must host it, create an app definition file for it and add it to your app store. Make sure to set the "shell" top-level key to true:

    "shell": true

Modify the system configuration of io.Connect Desktop from the system.json file located in %LocalAppData%/ Desktop/Desktop/config. Set the "useEmbeddedShell" property to false:

    "useEmbeddedShell": false

Restart io.Connect Desktop for the changes to take effect.
