web-search plugin

This plugin adds aliases for searching with Google, Wiki, Bing, YouTube and other popular services.

Open your ~/.zshrc file and enable the web-search plugin:

plugins=( ... web-search)


You can use the web-search plugin in these two forms:

  • web_search <context> <term> [more terms if you want]
  • <context> <term> [more terms if you want]

For example, these two are equivalent:

$ web_search google oh-my-zsh
$ google oh-my-zsh

Available search contexts are:

Context URL
