Hello there!
I started a project based on @azaidi's Rootless Pixel Launcher. I have cherry picked some features from various developers and added few of mine to create a fully working and customisable launcher. This launcher also includes the new P style dock by Google (as seen in the Android P DP1 Launcher).

Join the Telegram Channel!

XDA LABS VERSION!

IMPORTANT: After conducting a poll on the Telegram Channel for changing the package name of the launcher, I got ~450 responses for 'YES'
I provide two versions now one is a non pixel launcher with no at glance and one pixel launcher package name.

The package name of the launcher has been changed to com.ruthless.nexuslauncher
• It frees you from the hassle of installing the Magisk Module everytime you clean flash a new ROM
• Now you can also install it besides having the stock Launcher3 or Pixel Launcher. (Yay!)
• It has a disadvantage - weather in the 'at a glance' widget will not work so you will have to use similar widget(s) from Play Store

Magisk Module
- This is for people who either use pixel launcher with custom recovery or use a custom ROM with a launcher3 with pixel launcher package name. EDIT: It's not needed as the package name has been changed and it doesn't conflict anymore!

Huge thanks to @Skittles9823 for the module!
Search for the Module in it's Downloads section. (aka repo)
