Project description


Quicklinks is a short command-line script that allows you to quickly switch to a a pre-configured link.

On OSx, this would be the same thing as doing the following:

ql google -> open


  • The only requirement for this application is Python 3

Usage and Installation

  1. Run the following script:

    pip install quicklinks
  2. Create a .quicklinks file in your user root:

    touch ~/.quicklinks
  3. Populate the .quicklinks file like the following:



  4. Run the program

    ql wiki

    And you will be redirected to your browser of choice, opening your link

Experimental new features!

Try out the browser extensions with Quicklinks server - Documentation


Fork this code and open a PR, all code is welcome as long as it follows the code of conduct!

To run the application locally, navigate to cli/ and run the command python ./


Quicklinks was inspired by my use of alias ql="open" as well as the very cool GoLinks, check them out if you want the same thing as quicklinks but in your browser itself!
