CLark - collect bookmarks on your command-line
clark [<options>...] [<command> [<options>...] [<arguments>...]]
CLark is a bookmarking program for the command-line. It is meant to interface with other programs to make its use easy, whilst remaining free of being locked in to any single browser or program (except for itself). This should allow you to keep your bookmarks in a single, easily accessible, place regardles of which browser you use at any moment.
CLark?! What the …?
I’ve been working on this program for a long time, though not very intensely, and it’s gone through a few names.
At first I absolutely wanted to write it in C, and I named it
linkwave. I made a little program that could store given URLs with
names and descriptions, but not much else than that.
Then I started messing around with Lisp and some of its
derivatives, such as chicken scheme. And then I thought it would be
much cooler to (re)write this in scheme! I named it
Markam collects books.
Now, I’m thinking that it would be much cooler still to write the thing in Common Lisp! So I name it CLark, because it is Common Lisp, and a rewrite of mARKam.
Each command has it’s own arguments and description, to see:
clark help <command>
- Add a new bookmark to the database.
- Edit a bookmark’s information.
- Check if a bookmark is already present in the database.
- Prints a usage and help message, showing a list of possible commands and some hints on how to use them. Can also show help messages for individual commands.
- Remove a bookmark from the database.
- Search through bookmarks for a certain title or tag.
- Replace or remove a bookmark’s tags.
- Print CLark’s version.
Command-line options can be passed to CLark with either
- Change the output of some commands to be somewhat more machine-friently, making it easier to parse the data.
