Webtap is a command line script inspired by Mozilla Firefox's "Keyword Shortcuts" feature. Its purpose is to facilitate similar keyword based Web browsing from the command line, as a CLI driven front end to your Web browser.

The distribution includes a Bash programmable completion file with all of the program's common options as well as the ability to tab through the available keywords.

Installation instructions:

1. Copy webtap somewhere in your $PATH, such as /usr/local/bin

cp webtap /usr/local/bin and (make sure the x bits are set).

2. For Bash completion copy webtap.bash_completion to system's
/etc/bash_completion.d path.

cp webtap.bash_completion /etc/bash_completion.d/webtap

3. Copy .webtapurls and .webtapcfg to your $HOME path.

cp .webtap* $HOME/

At this point webtap is ready for use. Customize your .webtapurls and .webtapcfg files and enjoy!

Usage:

webtap [options] < action > ...

actions:
open < keyword > < %s > - specify keyword(s) and any additional parameters.
list - list keywords.

options:
-c, --command < command > specify command to handle URL request(s).
--dry-run do nothing, only print commands.
-h, --help display this help message.
-v, --version display version information.

< keyword > can be multiple keywords seperated by commas
(e.g. keyword 'google-search, yahoo-search' '%s').
