       googler - Google from the command-line


       googler [OPTIONS] [KEYWORD [KEYWORD ...]]


       googler  is  a  command-line  tool to search Google (Web & News) from the terminal. Google
       site search works too. googler shows the title, URL and  text  context  for  each  result.
       Results  are fetched in pages. Next or previous page navigation is possible using keyboard
       shortcuts. Results are indexed and a result URL can be opened in a browser using the index
       number. There is no configuration file as aliases serve the same purpose for this utility.
       Supports sequential searches in a single instance.


         * Google Search, Google Site Search, Google News
         * Fast and clean (no ads, stray URLs or clutter), custom color

         * Fetch n results in a go, start at the n<sup>th</sup> result
         * Disable automatic spelling correction and search exact keywords
         * Specify duration, country/domain (default: worldwide/.com), language
         * Google keywords (e.g. filetype:mime, support
         * Open the first result directly in browser (as in I'm Feeling Lucky)
         * Non-stop searches: fire new searches at omniprompt without exiting
         * HTTPS proxy, User Agent, TLS 1.2 (default) support
         * Comprehensive documentation, man page with handy usage examples
         * Minimal dependencies


       -h, --help
              Show help text and exit.

       -s, --start=N
              Start at the Nth result.

       -n, --count=N
              Show N results (default 10).

       -N, --news
              Show results from news section.

       -c, --tld=TLD
              Country-specific search with top-level domain .TLD, e.g., in for India.

       -l, --lang=LANG
              Search for the language LANG, e.g., fi for Finnish.

       -x, --exact
              Disable automatic spelling correction. Search exact keywords.

       -C, --nocolor
              Disable color output.

              Set output colors. Refer to the COLORS section below for details.

       -j, --first, --lucky
              Open the first result in a web browser; implies --noprompt. Feeling Lucky?

       -t, --time=dN
              Time limit search [h5 (5 hrs), d5 (5 days), w5 (5 weeks),  m5  (5  months),  y5  (5

       -w, --site=SITE
              Search a site using Google.

              Do not omit similar results.

       -p, --proxy=PROXY
              Tunnel    traffic    through    an    HTTP    proxy.   PROXY   is   of   the   form
              [http://][user:password@]proxyhost[:port].  The  proxy  server  must  support  HTTP
              CONNECT  tunneling  and must not block port 443 for the relevant Google hosts. If a
              proxy is not explicitly given, the https_proxy environment variable (if  available)
              is used instead.

       --noua Disable user agent. Results are fetched faster.

              Disable  TCP  optimizations. Negotiate Transport Layer Security protocol instead of
              forcing TLS 1.2 (on Python  3.4  and  above).  Should  be  used  only  in  case  of
              connection issues.

       --json Output in JSON format; implies --noprompt.

              Custom script or command-line utility to open urls with.

              Do  not  suppress  browser  output when opening result in browser; that is, connect
              stdout and stderr of  the  browser  to  googler's  stdout  and  stderr  instead  of
              /dev/null.  By  default,  browser  output  is  suppressed (due to certain graphical
              browsers spewing messages to console) unless the BROWSER environment variable is  a
              known text-based browser: elinks, links, lynx, w3m or www-browser.

       --np, --noprompt
              Perform search and exit; do not prompt for further interactions.

       -u, --upgrade
              Perform  in-place  self-upgrade.  By  default,  the  latest stable version is used.
              However, the latest git master is used instead if --include-git is  also  supplied.
              This mechanism is not available on Windows (including Cygwin), and if you installed
              googler with a package manager, this mechanism  may  have  been  disabled  by  your
              packager at packaging or install time.

              See --upgrade.

       -v, --version
              Show version number and exit.

       -d, --debug
              Enable debugging.


       n, p   Fetch the next or previous set of search results.

       index  Open the result corresponding to index in browser.

       f      Jump to the first page.

       o [index|range|a ...]
              Open  space-separated  result  indices,  numeric  ranges  (sitelinks unsupported in
              ranges) or all indices, if 'a' is specified,  in  the  browser.  Open  the  current
              search in the browser, if no arguments.

       O [index|range|a ...]
              Works  similar to key 'o', but tries to ignore text-based browsers (even if BROWSER
              is set) and open links in a GUI browser.

       g keywords
              Initiate a new Google search for keywords with original options. This key should be
              used to search omniprompt keys (including itself) and indices.

       c index
              Copy url to clipboard.

       u      Toggle url expansion.

       q, ^D, double Enter
              Exit googler.

       ?      Show omniprompt help.

       *      Any other string initiates a new search with original options.


       googler  @t  is  a  convenient  add-on  to  Google Site Search with unique keywords. While
       googler has an integrated option to search a site, it could  be  simplified  further  with
       aliases.    The    file   googler_at   (
       completion/googler_at/googler_at) contains a list of website search aliases. To source it,

           source googler_at


           . googler_at

       With googler @t, the following command searches Wikipedia for hexspeak:

           @w hexspeak

       Other  googler  options can be combined. The shell can be configured to be source the file
       at start-up for further convenience.

       All the aliases start with the @ symbol (hence the name googler @t) and there  is  minimum
       chance they will conflict with any shell commands. Users can add new aliases to the file.


       googler  allows  you to customize the color scheme via a six-letter string, reminiscent of
       BSD LSCOLORS. The six letters represent the colors of

       - indices
       - titles
       - URLs
       - metadata/publishing info (Google News only)
       - abstracts
       - prompts

       respectively. The six-letter string is passed in either as the argument  to  the  --colors
       option, or as the value of the environment variable GOOGLER_COLORS.

       We offer the following colors/styles:

         │Letter │ Color/Style                                       │
         │a      │ black                                             │

         │o      │ bright cyan                                       │
         │p      │ bright white                                      │
         │A-H    │ bold version of the lowercase-letter color        │
         │I-P    │ bold version of the lowercase-letter bright color │
         │x      │ normal                                            │
         │X      │ bold                                              │
         │y      │ reverse video                                     │
         │Y      │ bold reverse video                                │

       The default colors string is GKlgxy, which stands for

       - bold bright cyan indices
       - bold bright green titles
       - bright yellow URLs
       - cyan metadata/publishing info
       - normal abstracts
       - reverse video prompts

       Note that

       - Bright  colors  (implemented  as \x1b[90m - \x1b[97m) may not be available in all color-
         capable terminal emulators;

       - Some terminal emulators draw bold text in bright colors instead;

       - Some terminal emulators only distinguish between bold and bright colors via  a  default-
         off switch.

       Please    consult    the    manual    of    your    terminal    emulator    as   well   as for details.


              Overrides the default browser. Ref:

              Refer to the COLORS section.

              Force a plain omniprompt if you are facing issues with colors at the prompt.

              Refer to the --proxy option.

              Show the domain names in search results instead of the expanded URL.


       1.  Google hello world:

              googler hello world

       2.  Fetch 15 results updated within the last 14 months, starting from the 3rd  result  for
           the keywords jungle book in site

              googler -n 15 -s 3 -t m14 -w jungle book

       3.  Read recent news on gadgets:

              googler -N gadgets

       4.  Fetch results on IPL cricket from Google India server in English:

              googler -c in -l en IPL cricket

       5.  Search quoted text:

              googler it\'s a \"beautiful world\" in spring

       6.  Search for a specific file type:

              googler instrumental filetype:mp3

       7.  Disable  automatic  spelling  correction,  e.g.  fetch  results for googler instead of

              googler -x googler

       8.  I'm feeling lucky search:

              googler -j leather jackets

       9.  Website specific search:

              googler -w -w digital camera

           Site specific search continues at omniprompt.

       10. Alias to find definitions of words:

              alias define='googler -n 2 define'

       11. Look up n, p, o, O, q, g keywords  or  a  result  index  at  the  omniprompt:  as  the
           omniprompt recognizes these keys or index strings as commands, you need to prefix them
           with g, e.g.,

              g n
              g g keywords
              g 1

       12. Input and output redirection:

              googler -C hello world < input > output

           Note that -C is required to avoid printing control characters (for colored output).

       13. Pipe output:

              googler -C hello world | tee output

       14. Use a custom color scheme, e.g., one warm color scheme designed for Solarized Dark:

              googler --colors bjdxxy google

              GOOGLER_COLORS=bjdxxy googler google

       15. Tunnel traffic through an HTTPS proxy, e.g., a local  Privoxy  instance  listening  on
           port 8118:

              googler --proxy localhost:8118 google

           By default the environment variable https_proxy is used, if defined.

       16. Quote multiple search keywords to auto-complete (using completion script):

              googler 'hello w<TAB>
