View Full Version : goosh.org - The Unofficial Google Command Shell

June 3rd, 2008, 04:48 AM
I just ran across this site via http://www.ubuntu-unleashed.com

http://www.goosh.org/ is a google interface that behaves similarly to a unix shell. You simply type a command, and the results are displayed for you in the terminal, so to speak. It may really make you feel at home!

A list of available commands is as follows:

command aliases parameters function
web (search,s,w) [keywords] google web search
lucky (l) [keywords] go directly to first result
images (image,i) [keywords] google image search
wiki (wikipedia) [keywords] wikipedia search
clear (c) clear the screen
help (man,h,?) [command] displays help text
news (n) [keywords] google news search
blogs (blog,b) [keywords] google blog search
feeds (feed,f) [keywords] google feed search
open (o) <url> open url in new window
go (g) <url> open url
more (m) get more results
in (site) <url><keywords> search in a specific website
load <extension_url> load an extension
video (videos,v) [keywords] google video search
read (rss,r) <url> read feed of url
place (places,map,p) [address] google maps search
lang <language> change language
addengine add goosh to firefox search box
translate (trans,t) [lang1][lang2]<words> google translation

It'd be nice to have something like this that runs in the terminal.
