a command-line browser interface
cliquery cuts down on clicking through command-line web searching, page previewing, and page bookmarking, among other features. An interactive prompt allows users to easily make successive queries and enter program flags dynamically; simply typing help will list all possible flags to enter. Opening a link will invoke a browser supplied by the user or detected automatically across Windows, OSX, and Linux platforms.
pip install cliquery --user
pip install git+https://github.com/huntrar/cliquery.git#egg=cliquery --user
git clone https://github.com/huntrar/cliquery cd cliquery python setup.py install --user

It is advised to copy the blank .cliqrc into .local.cliqrc, as .cliqrc will be emptied after a program update. To do this, enter the following:
cd "$(dirname "$(cliquery -c)")" && cp .cliqrc .local.cliqrc
Recommended (optional) setup
Configuration setup is completely optional but will improve your experience. This includes integrating Google Custom Search, WolframAlpha, and/or selection of browser choice.
The browser invoked is selected implicitly by the webbrowser module. To explicitly choose your browser, set the name in .local.cliqrc under ‘browser’ or set the BROWSER environment variable on your system.
For best results, sign up for a Google Custom Search API key This defaults search to Google, otherwise results will come from Bing.
The instructions are as follows: Upon signing into Google, click on API Manager, then Credentials, and create an API key. Enter this under the ‘google_api_key’ field in .cliqrc.
Next, create a custom search engine. You must choose at least one site to search during creation (I chose stackoverflow.com), but to search the entire web you must click on this new search engine, go to Setup, then Basics, and select ‘Search the entire web but emphasize included sites.’ Then you may choose to keep or delete the site you originally provided.
After creating a custom search engine, click on the engine, go to Setup, and under Details click Search engine ID. Enter this under the ‘google_engine_key’ field.
For WolframAlpha usage, sign up for a WolframAlpha API key Enter your key under the ‘wolfram_api_key’ field.
Users may also import Firefox or Chrome bookmarks into .cliqrc by exporting the bookmarks to HTML and importing to cliquery with the -i flag. The imported bookmarks will be added to your existing bookmarks, which may result in duplicates.
usage: cliquery.py [-h] [-b] [-c] [-C] [-d] [-e] [-f] [-i [IMPORT]] [-o] [-p] [-s] [-v] [-w] [QUERY [QUERY ...]] a command-line browser interface positional arguments: QUERY keywords to search optional arguments: -h, --help show this help message and exit -b, --bookmark view and modify bookmarks -c, --config print config file location -C, --clear-cache clear the cache -d, --describe summarize links -e, --edit edit config file -f, --first open first link -i [IMPORT], --import [IMPORT] import bookmarks from file -o, --open directly open links -p, --print print links to stdout -s, --search search for links -v, --version display current version -w, --wolfram search WolframAlpha
Supports both Python 2.x and Python 3.x.
NOTE: If you receive the following message (or similar) when trying to modify bookmarks:
IOError: [Errno 13] Permission denied: '/usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/cliquery/.cliqrc'
This means you did not follow the install advice and chose to install as root. You have three options:
1. (recommended) Uninstall and reinstall as a non-root user by following the instructions above. 2. Change the configuration file ownership from root to user by entering the following: sudo chown $USER "$(cliquery -c)" 2. (not recommended) Execute cliquery as root, using su or sudo.
A search may return immediate results, such as calculations or facts made possible by WolframAlpha, or instead a page of Google search results comprised of links and their descriptions.
Interactive usage allows the user to continue making new queries by dynamically executing new program flags and/or queries. Entering h or help will list all possible prompt commands.

To choose multiple links at once, a range may be specified by separating the start and end range with a dash. Leaving one end of the range blank will choose all links until the other end of that range. For example, given 10 links, entering 5- would effectively be the same as entering 5-10.
Requests cache is enabled by default to cache webpages, it can be disabled by setting the environment variable CLIQ_DISABLE_CACHE.
Using the bookmark flag with no arguments will list all current bookmarks in .cliqrc, naturally ordered by time of entry. Entering help with the flag will list all possible commands including open, add, remove, tag/untag (for aliasing), describe, and move. Bookmarks like other flags may be entered during runtime in the link prompt.
Additional arguments may be appended to bookmarks while opening them. These are interpreted as any non-integer arguments which are not found in any bookmarks (URLs or tags).
