Create a 'New Document' shortcut in Nautlius File Manager

It’s fairly simple, just create a file in the ~/Templates folder, it’ll show up in the right click menu

touch ${HOME}/Templates/Empty\ Document

The only caveat is that you have to rename the file after it’s created.

I used the name for my file.

  • The .md extension because 90% of the files i create in Nautlius with the right click menu are Markdown files. I made other .sh, .js, .scss templates too..
  • 1_ at the beginning means that it shows up at the top of the list view in the folder when it is set to sort A-Z
