A simple and quick startpage that lets you access your favourite websites as well as the most famous services, all that with just a click or few keywords. It's a perfect replacement to the default startpage on your browser.
Check out the website !

That Startpage Rocks (formely 'The Startpage') is released under the GNU LGPL v3 license. The website is hosted on Google App Engine and is written in Python, using the Flask microframework. Of course, there is fair use of HTML and Javascript, as well as JQuery, for the web interface.

Features

Compared to other startpages available on the web, That Startpage Rocks is focused on simplicity and productivity. Our aim is that you spend the least time finding what you want, no distractions are there to slow you down, just powerful tools to help you quickly find the right content. This does not affect the beauty of your startpage, however, thanks to our modern interface and the ability to customize your startpage with your own background image. In a few words: Simplicity, Speed, Productivity, Beauty, Delight

Add your favourite websites

Like you would expect, add your favourite websites to your startpage. Thanks to our [scalable] icon repository, your apps have beautifully sharp icons.

Search famous websites

The very special search engine lets you quickly find content from major web services. It works a little bit like a command line. For instance, if you'd like to search a youtube video, just type youtube followed by a query. You'll then get realtime results, linking directly to videos.

Here are all the supported web services :

  • youtube
  • spotify
  • soundcloud
  • pixabay
  • wikipedia
  • guardian
  • new york times

Customize your startpage

Change your startpage's title, colour theme, and background image, with the editor.

Contribute

Please submit a bug if you find one. If you've got new web services that you'd like me to add, please do also submit a bug. Other ideas or questions are also welcome.
