git firefox search?

[ #39342 ]

Dear lazyweb,

Is there a Firefox search plugin thingy, so that I can type a git commit hash into the Firefox search box, and it takes me to the appropriate http://perl5.git.perl.org/perl.git/commit/...?

  • Save that page as a bookmark, right click on the bookmark and select "properties". Set the keyword to "git" (or whatever keyword you want) and set the URL to http://perl5.git.perl.org/perl.git/commit/%s. Then, you just type git 8d063cd8450e59ea1c611a2f4f5a21059a2804f1 in the address bar to go to the correct hashtag (the %s is replaced with your hashtag).

    Or have I completely misunderstood you? :)

      No, you haven't. This did the trick. Thanks. Although the route to the right dialogue isn't a "right click" on OS X Firefox 3. It's something more faffy than that, which I now can't remember.

  • http://www.opensearch.org/Home [opensearch.org] as implemented on openguides installs http://london.randomness.org.uk/ [randomness.org.uk] in firefox your search box icon should change colour click on the icon and it should ask you at the bottom if you want to add it. the rest is merely an implementation detail.
  • You can also right click on the search box and select the "Add a Keyword for this Search" option if you feel especially lazy.
