I've started writing a lot of simple custom launcher scripts. For instance, `750words` to open https://750words.com in a firefox window, and then launching that with dmenu. I've been surprised how different (more intentional) it feels to open that versus opening a browser and navigating to it.
You can do similar things in macOS, but because Mac apps are more polished, with nicely designed icons, the gap between your custom scripts and professional apps is much more noticeable. The limitations (name-only) of the dmenu interface make it much easier to customize and participate.
