rofi custom application list

Out-of-the-box, `rofi -show run` lists all installed binaries on my system, including a lot of stuff I'd never run directly. I'd like to maintain my custom list of applications that rofi would show.

Is it possible to add a custom application list in rofi?
I can't find any info on the wiki or in the manual.

Re: rofi custom application list

Look into "rofi -show drun" and "rofi -drun-match-fields". Cheers!

Re: rofi custom application list

Not quite an answer to the question, however using

rofi.disable-history: false

in /home/$USER/.config/rofi/config  for a couple days will put most frequent used apps to beginning of rofi box.

PS. some shell scripts i use to add custom entries to rofi

this video is worth a watch.
