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.$$
  1. 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
