Keyword Expansion

Firefox add-on to expand keywords in bookmark URLs. Modern alternative to KeywordSelection.

Usage

Embed directives of the form %{ke:<keyword>[:<options>]} in your bookmark URLs.

Keywords

Possible keywords are:

Keyword Replacement
selection The currently selected text (if no text is selected, the fallback option applies)
location The current tab's location URL
origin The current tab's origin
domain The current tab's domain
host The current tab's host
path The current tab's path
query The current tab's query
directory The current tab's path without the last component

Options

Options are of the form <option>[=<value>], where <value> defaults to true. Multiple options are separated by ,.

Option Description
escape Whether the replacement value should be encoded as a URI component (default, specify escape=false if you need the unescaped value)
fallback Which page to load if no text is selected (only applies to the selection keyword); possible values are: origin (the site's homepage, default), path (the URL without the query parameters), directory (the path without the last component), basedir (the path's first component only)

Keyword searches compatibility

The following directives are supported for compatibility with keyword searches. Options are not allowed.

Directive Equivalent
%s %{ke:selection}
%S %{ke:selection:escape=false}

You can disable keyword searches compatibility in the extension preferences.
