Leander

Leander is a command line HTML clipping utility written in Ruby.

Why?

I wrote this to replace my old method of bookmarking - "xclip -o | perl -pi -e 's:$:\n\n:g' >> ~/.bookmarks".

This provides a nicer way to search for links and get some context when the time comes to retrieve one.

Install

I've tested this with ruby 1.8.7 (and now 1.9.1) on Arch Linux. I offer no guarantees to its performance. The simplest way to install is probably 'gem install leander', although that may be flakey.

Help

usage: leander 'query' OR leander query bookmarks or store a bookmark from URL on STDIN

specific options -d, --delete deletes all documents matching the given query from the index --show-html print out the HTML stored for each URL provided --hide-url hide URL : useful with --show-html to pipe output to a browser -h, --help Show this message

Reccomended Usage

I use Xmonad, and I use leander like this:

((modMask .|. shiftMask, xK_t), spawn "xclip -o | leander")

Combined with Vimperator's 'yy' command to yank the current URL, it's pretty slick.

leander-server

leander features a sinatra-based server component

    # leander-server&
    # curl http://localhost:4567/search/leander
        <p class='results'>
            <p>rudle's leander at master - GitHub</p><a href="http://github.com/rudle/leander">
            http://github.com/rudle/leander
            </a>
        </p>
    # curl http://localhost:4567/api/search/leander
    {"0":{"result":{"url":"http://github.com/rudle/leander\n","title":"rudle's leander at master - GitHub"}}}

We can also write a new bookmark using /write/http://domain.tld
