How to install Googler on Ubuntu & Linux Mint

Chưa phân loại

If you are linux geek star and love trying out something new and unique, then checkout “googler”. Googler is a power tool that enables you to Google the web for news and perform a google site search via the command-line. It shows the title, URL as well as abstract for each result, which can be directly opened in a browser from the terminal. Results are fetched in pages (with page navigation). Supports sequential searches in a single googler instance. Before we proceed on how to install googler on ubuntu, lets review its history.

googler was initially written to cater to headless servers without X. You can integrate it with a text-based browser. However, it has grown into a very handy and flexible utility that delivers much more. For example, fetch any number of results or start anywhere, limit search by any duration, define aliases to google search any number of websites, switch domains easily… all of this in a very clean interface without ads or stray URLs. The shell completion scripts make sure you don’t need to remember any options.

googler isn’t affiliated to Google in any way.
