If you don't know it, Raycast it's a super powerful Spotlight replacement for macOS and, it has a store of free extensions where you can find a lot of user-made plugins to add more options and features to it.

I love this app, and I'm working on Monse, so I decide to make an extension to manage all your bank accounts inside Raycast.

Raycast extensions are made with JavaScript and React. If you already know it, it will be effortless for you to create and extension, you just need to know a few things about the Raycast API and available options.

The simpler way to start a new extension is using Raycast and running the "Create Extension" command. This command will ask you some questions about your extension and create a bootstrap folder. You can even choose between a long list of templates to make it even easier.

After this, you just need to go to your extension folder and run npm install && npm run dev. Now you can open Raycast and you will see your extension at the root search.

Now it's your time to build your extension using the Raycast API.
