I have been using maya for sometime and I found that they have something called shelves, you make a shelf and you add buttons that you use regularly in it.

I found a add on called Shelfy and I tried to install it.

I downloaded the zip file and extracted it from this repo https://bitbucket.org/cgarhivator/shelfy/src/master/

I opened blender 3.1.2 and went to edit -> preferences -> Add-ons and I installed it by pressing install and choosing the __init__.py in the directory.

I then searched on shelfy in the community Add-ons and found "3D view: shelfy addon" and I enabled it

enter image description here

still shelfy still doesn't appear in blender view port I would be happy to know where I went wrong.

Don't unzip and select the __init__.py

Just select the zip file and click "Install Add-on". That will install the addon successfully
