Do you want to implement launchpad analog for PW?

If it will help you, you can intercept user press on Menu button with lipc-set-prop command (but don't use double click event, as shown in linked example, it's very hard to make double click). interrogatePillow property of com.lab126.pillow allows to execute arbitrary JavaScript code in context of HTML page representing top bar (with search field, Menu button, etc.). With manipulating of DOM you can also add your own button to top bar. It will be a bit like GUI launcher, but it will work not only at Home screen.
