History

Description

This patch writes the loaded URI to a file and that is all it does. You must modify config.h and add the following:

static char *historyfile        = ".surf/history";

Here are some ways of using it.

  1. Write a small shell script (dmenu.uri.sh)

    tac ~/.surf/history | dmenu -l 10 -b -i | cut -d ‘ ’ -f 3

  2. Modify config.h and add the following.

    #define SETURI(p) { .v = (char *[]){ “/bin/sh”, “-c”, \ “prop=\”dmenu.uri.sh\“ &&” \ “xprop -id $1 -f $0 8s -set $0 \”$prop\“”, \ p, winid, NULL } }

    and in static Key keys[] add:

    { MODKEY, GDK_Return, spawn, SETURI(“_SURF_GO”) },

Here are some tips on using it.

  1. Remove duplicates periodically:

    cat ~/.surf/history > ~/.surf/history.$$ cat ~/.surf/history.$$ | sort | uniq >~/.surf/history rm -f ~/.surf/history.$$

  2. Import history:

Firefox: sqlite3 -list $HOME/.mozilla/firefox/*.default/places.sqlite ‘select url from moz_places ;’ | grep ^http >> ~/.surf/history

Chromium: sqlite3 -list $HOME/.config/chromium/Default/History ‘select url from urls’ | grep ^http >> ~/.surf/history
