Wikipedia searching from the command line!

Installation

(This probably isn't the best way, but here it goes)

  1. Download the latest version of cwiki - https://github.com/chrishannah/cwiki/releases.
  2. Open up your terminal app of choice.
  3. Navigate to the folder containing the "cwiki" file.
  4. Add the executable permission to the file: chmod +x cwiki.
  5. Move the file to the usr/local/bin directory so it can be launched as a command: mv cwiki /usr/local/bin.

Then you can run a wikipedia search by typing cwiki followed by your query (If it's a multi-word query you'll need to use speech marks.).
