goboom

Synopsis

goboom [option]

goobom_run

Description

goboom is wrapper around the dmenu. goboom is the successor and rewrite of xboomx in Go.

goboom sorts commands to launch according to their launch frequency. In other words - if you launch Chromium and KeePassX all the time - they will appear in the list of commands first.

Build

goboom is built using Go 1.5 vendoring and godeps.

Install

goboom is available via AUR as goboom-bin. For binary downloads see https://bintray.com/atriix/generic/goboom/view.

sudo cp goboom /usr/bin
sudo cp goboom_run /usr/bin
mkdir -p ~/.goboom
cp config.ini.default ~/.goboom/config.ini

Set your keybinding to goboom_run.

Options

--gc Run garbage collection of the DB
--launcher Output launcher command
--post Update ranking DB
--pre Generate dmenu in
--stats View DB stats

Migration from xboomx

goboom will look for a config file in ~/.goboom. You will need to will need to convert you old config file to ini-format and name it config.ini, see the bundled default ini-file for guidence.

goboom uses a csv-file instead sqlite as datastore. You will need to export your xboomx db as so. At this point there is not a provided tool to do so, but you can easely export it with something like sqlitebrowser.

The contents of your exported database should look along the lines of this:

name,count
chroimum,13
keepassx,17
gimp,4
