I (jrgl) have attempted to port this to nautilus using nautilus actions however some elements of nautilus' actions are hard-coded and it would require a custom installer: if this is wanted please contact the team.

Short notes:

Nautilius testing:

Uses .desktop files in ~/.local/share/file-manager/actions
Use only Name[C], ToolbarLabel[C] etc= to specify a name that works accross all languages
SOMEPROGRAM (see below) cannot use ~ or $HOME unless Show Output is specified and this pops up an annoying additional window.

Minimum nautilius action is as follows

[Desktop Entry]
Type=Action
TargetLocation=true
TargetContext=false
ToolbarLabel[C]=test actionc
Name[C]=test action
Profiles=profile-zero;

[X-Action-Profile profile-zero]
Exec=SOMEPROGRAM %f
Name[C]=Default profilesud
Path=%f
