Kickstarter automates the process of launching several apps by letting you capture 'setups' - lists of apps to launch and shell commands to run. So when you need to launch all those apps, you can just launch the setup, and Kickstarter will launch the apps for you. You can also run shell commands with the shell of your choice. You can launch setups from the Kickstarter menu in the status bar, or via a keyboard launcher.
