Project description

A command line utility to open browser for when you want to search something across various search options


This is a simple utility to open browser from command line when you want to search something from various search options. Currently, it supports DuckDuckGo. But quickly, will plan to add the following options as well :

  • DuckDuckGo (“ddg”)

  • GOOGLE (“g”)

  • WIKIPEDIA (“w”)

  • WIRECUTTER (“wc”)

  • AMAZON (“a”)


  • IMDB (“imdb”)

  • SWIGGY (“sw”)


Run the following command to install clisy

pip install clisy

Once clisy is installed, you get a command line utility called clisycp.


It is simple command line utility. To see the usage, you can type the following

clisycp -h
