Manage your link on terminal

Project description

LinkManager manage your link on terminal.

Replace bookmark tool present on browser because :
  • Is often heavy
  • Dependent of the browser in question
  • Has a lot of frills
  • DataBase usage depend on browser
  • Find a local link should not require several hundred MB of Ram and eat your CPU
  • One software for one thing (Unix Philosophy)
  • KISS for import/export
  • Many other good reasons


Linkmanager depends on redis Database and GIT (personal “clint” version). You must install it like this (on debian/ubuntu) :

$ sudo apt-get install redis-server git

To enjoy completion, usually you don’t have to do anything extra. A “sudo pip install” should add it automatically. Otherwise, just add the run the following command to your ~/.bashrc or ~/.zshrc :

$ eval "$(register-python-argcomplete linkm)"


$ linkm add # add a link on Database
$ linkm update # update properties on a existent link
$ linkm remove # remove a link on DataBase
$ linkm search python linux # search a link a link on DataBase with tags
$ linkm dump >| backup.json # serialize a entire Database on a JSON file
$ linkm load backup.json # load a list of links on DataBase
$ linkm flush # erase all DataBase

when you add/edit links, the “shell” will ask you for each one to edit tags, priority value and a description.

$ linkm add
    "" properties :
        tags (separate with ",") : django, python, framework
        priority value (integer value between 1 and 10) : 5
        give a description : Django is a high-level Python Web framework that encourages rapid development and clean, pragmatic design.
