I just released ruby-wmii 0.3.1. If you didn't know it, it's a Ruby script plus associated plugins to control the wmii window manager.

The most important (and heaviest) change in 0.3.1 is the inclusion of the bookmark manager I wrote about earlier. It can import and sync your bookmarks against, is keypress by keypress the most efficient bookmark manager out there, and allows complex queries. It supports regular expressions on both titles and URLs, progressive refining, temporal expressions... For instance, you can open all the articles with the redhanded tag, including 'wmii' in either the title or the URL, bookmarked/visited in the last 2 months with

 :redhanded wmii ~d <2m

If you already had ruby-wmii installed, you can enable the bookmark manager by adding something like this to your ~/.wmii-3/wmiirc-config.rb:

from "standard" do
  use_binding "bookmark"      # , "MODKEY-Shift-b" # uncomment and change to
  use_binding "bookmark-open" # , "MODKEY-b"       # override the default keys
plugin_config["standard:bookmark"][""] = 'myusername'
plugin_config["standard:bookmark"][""] = 'mypass'

I've also added recently an experimental binding to move across the view history, using MODKEY-plus (forward) and MODKEY-minus (backwards) by default. I've been using it for a few days and it seems to complement MODKEY-r (move to previous view, cycles over the last 2 views) nicely. Here's the incantation:

from "standard" do
    use_binding "history-move-forward"
    use_binding "history-move-back"

ruby-wmii 0.3.1 also includes a few additional features and a number of bugfixes.


I've created a couple editable nodes on you can use to find and share configurations, plugins, tips, etc:


The latest version of ruby-wmii is available here.
