build release

A mnemonic terminal url opener. Also a personal minimal terminal bookmark manager.

If you live mostly in the terminal and want quick access to some of your most frequently visited websites, this little tool can help you achieve that.

An example scenario:

  1. I often visit https://crates.io.
  2. I often search for a crate on crates.io.

To do so in the terminal, I run once gogo add cr https://crates.io. This allows me to do:

$ gogo cr
opening: "https://crates.io"

Some websites support /search?q={query}, for those you can also do:

$ gogo search cr serde
opening: "https://crates.io/search?q=serde"


  • Install rust (tested with 1.46+).
  • Export GOGODB_PATH env var to something like: /path/to/gogo.sqlite.
  • Supply a browser executable with gogo set_browser /path/to/browser.

PS: For MacOS browser, try this (Firefox as an example):

$ gogo set_browser /Applications/Firefox.app/Contents/MacOS/firefox-bin


$ cargo install gogo


  • gogo ls will print an ascii table:
$ gogo ls
| key       | val                |
| cr        | https://crates.io  |
  • gogo check will print the url for mnemonic:
$ gogo check cr
value: "https://crates.io"
  • gogo import /path/to/exported_csv and gogo export work as expected and output a CSV file.

  • If you switch systems, just satisfy the requirements and copy over your gogo.sqlite db to your new machine.


The help is self documenting:
