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.
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
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!
