Project description

Quicklinks

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 https://google.com

Requirements

  • 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:

    {your-link-key}:{your-link-value}
    

    Example:

    google:https://google.com
    wiki:https://wikipedia.com
    
  4. Run the program

    ql wiki
    

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

Experimental new features!
