dmenu: a powerful menu launcher
Here is a script I've built to launch a command, run a web search, open a bookmark, or do a simple calculation. Dmenu will run automatically recognize what need to be done with the text thrown at it.
To run this script you will obviously need dmenu but also:
- menu-calc if you want to do simple calculation. menu-calc uses bc as the backend and will accept any operations bc is able to do.
- xclip if you want to use copy/paste in dmenu
- a web browser and your preferred search engine. Here I'm using Brave and duckduckgo
- part of this script also handle my vpn connection automatically (expressvpn)
This script is available on my gitlab (named dmenu.sh)
(remember that I'm not a professional IT and this script may not written at best but at least it works)
Hope you'll find it useful. Don't hesitate to let me know and/or to submit improvements !
