Advanced usage


First obtain an oauth token by loggin in with github at

borg login my3XamPleT0k3n

You are ready to save your own content

borg new

A vim window opens and lets you save your snippet. For example:

How to grep for a file in current directory

ls | grep mySearchTerm

Save and exit vim.


Using our search example, typing borg edit 1 will present you with an editor window containing:

Find and delete .txt files in bash

find . -name "*.txt" | xargs rm

find . -name "*.txt" -exec rm {} \;

10 $ find  . -name "*.txt" -type f -delete

Let's say you want to remove the second snippet because your don't like it. Modify it so it becomes:

Find and delete .txt files in bash

find . -name "*.txt" | xargs rm

10 $ find  . -name "*.txt" -type f -delete

Save and exit.

(Do not care about the incorrect alphabetical order, it's ok)

Who can add/edit what?

Any logged in user can edit any content. We trust you with not being a vandal.


Borg supports gnu flags, so flags are supported both before and after the arguments, so all of the followings are valid:

borg -l 30 -f "md5 Mac"
borg "md5 Mac" -l30 -f
borg -f "md5 Mac" -l30

But what do they do?

-f  (= false)
    Print full results, ie. no more '...'
-h (= "")
    Server to connect to
-l  (= 5)
    Result list limit. Defaults to 5
-p  (= false)
    Private search. Your search won't leave a trace. Pinky promise. Don't use this all the time if you want to see the search result relevancy improved
