Today I present my command plugin, which enables you to define your own vim-like commands.
As I was saying earlier: uzbl rocks!
So, here's a little follow-up which tells you how to not only get vim-keybindings in uzbl (which you get for free and by default), but also vim-commands that even integrate with autocompletion and wrap transparently around all uzbl builtins.
The trick is this little plugin I wrote.
It gives you two new requests:
request DEF_COMMAND name implementation request EXEC_COMMAND name args
The first defines a new command with the given name and an implementation, the second executes such a custom command and any uzbl builtin.
I like to shorten the above with the following definitions:
set def = request DEF_COMMAND set exec = requests EXEC_COMMAND
Then you can redefine the
:_ prompt as follows:
@cbind :_ @exec %s
Now on to some examples.
I like to type
:q to close my browser window,
so I defined
@def q exit
Even more, since I'm not using uzbl-tabbed, I
like to type
:qall to kill all my open uzbl
@def qall sh 'killall uzbl-core'
Or how about a command to reload your config?
@def config-reload sh "sed '/^# === Post-load misc commands/,$d' $1 | grep '^set ' > $4"
Now go into your uzbl and test it. Nice, huh ;-)
