ULP is a Locator Picker - a PathPicker clone for URLs

Project description

# ulp is a Location Picker

Ulp is a command-line tool that can be used to find and interact with URLs from a given input.

Think of something like Facebook’s [PathPicker](, but for URLs.

## Installing

Ulp is a python package and as such it can be installed via pip. You can install the latest released version with

` pip install -U ulp `

and, if you want to install a fresh version from the latest source code (good luck), you can run

` pip install git+ `

For systems where Python 2.x is the default version, you might need to run the commands above using pip3 as the executable instead of pip.

## Requirements

Ulp is being developed/used with Python 3.5, but it might just work with Python > 3.0

Copy to clipboard functionality depends on [Pyperclip]( and as such you might need to install additional modules for it to work. Check Pyperclip’s Readme for details.

## Usage

Simply pipe or redirect the input from which you want to pick the URLs into ulp. Yes, just like PathPicker. Yes, it’s on purpose.


If you’re pushing to a BitBucket repository, for example, the output of hg push will give you the URL where you can create a new PR from the branch you just pushed to, so you can do

` hg push | ulp `

and open the given URL in a browser or copy it for later.

If you just want to list the URLs in a given input, you can use the ulp_extract helper script, like this:

` cat huge_text_with_lots_of_urls | ulp_extract `

## License

Ulp is licensed with the [MIT License](
