Add a shortcut to Gnome Shell Favourites

Step 1
Run command:
  $ gnome-desktop-item-edit ~/.local/share/applications --create-new

A dialogue pops up asking us to Create Launcher.

Step 2
Fill in the dialogue with a name and the path to the application we want to run. For example, if we want to name our launcher as my_app, a my_app icon will be generated in Activities->Applications.

Step 3
Drag & drop the icon into the Favourites.
