Usage: bm [options] [cmd]

Commands:

  # add a bookmark with the given url, description, and optional tags
  $ bm add <url> [desc] [tag...]

  $ bm open <query>
  $ bm <query>

Screenshots

Run bm view to view the bookmark screenshots in your default browser, currently a very experimental feature, and url2png puts lame watermarks on the images, and it's pretty slow :(

Dropbox

Later I'll make it so you can tweak the path, however for now the bookmarks are persisted to ~/Dropbox/bookmarks:

$ cat ~/Dropbox/bookmarks
