This plugin opens a website by making a lynx -dump call behind
the scenes and takes advantage of the dumps link references so
you can click on links and browse through a site.
It seems to work well on wikipedia and any text friendly sites
when all you want is a quick definition to settle a factual debate... etc.
Included are some 'K' keywordprg modifications to give you some ideas.
(If you have any file type specific suggestions please email them to me)
To open a web page
:Wikipedia the life of brian
Will open en.wikipedia.org/wiki/<search term>
:Google <search term>
Opens google to the search term
:GoogleLucky <search term>
Opens Lucky Google search
you can also create your own site specific googling eg.
com! -nargs=+ GooglePythonDoc call OpenGoogle(<q-args>, 0 , 'docs.python.org')
(make the second arg 1 for lucky)
Within the browser view the <tab> key cycles through links and
pressing <cr> will open a link.
the u key seems to work ok as a back button
|This script requires the lynx browser
Place browser.vim in your plugin folder
also I recommend the pathogen/vundle plugins for installs
then you can just
git clone https://github.com/mjbrownie/browser.vim.git ~/.vim/bundle/browser
Click on the package to download.
