A fully customizable Shortcut launcher UI

This is an example on how to use HTML/CSS/JavaScript to create a nice shortcut launcher that looks nice and even supports full-screen mode. This is a very simple example as I'm no expert at designing with CSS/HTML. I'm sure some of you will be able to enhance this a lot.

(If you don't like the window buttons you can hide them using the actions titlebar setting)

The shortcut is available here, you need to adapt the JSON in the first action to make it work with
your own Shortcuts.
