searchraw – a surfraw launcher for openbox

I like surfraw. It’s a command line tool that helps you search the web quite well – but I often forget exactly how much power and utility is there. And since I’m usually in a graphical environment, I waste time running about and not using this amazing tool.

Add to that fact that there are a TON of helpers (or elvi) – full list here – and I frequently forgot when there would be a useful one.

So I wrote this script for OpenBox to help me use surfraw to its full potential. You can see the results below; the full script and install/configuration directions are on GitHub at https://github.com/uriel1998/surfraw_ob
