search pouet.net with Mozilla Ubiquity

category: general [glöplog]
I wrote a command for Mozilla Ubiquity that allows to search pouet for a prod/group/etc.

run "command-editor", then paste in the editing window following code:

Code: noun_type_pouetsearch = new CmdUtils.NounType( "search type", ["prod", "group", "party", "board", "user", "bbs"] ); CmdUtils.CreateCommand({ name: "pouet", takes: {"what": noun_arb_text}, modifiers: {as: noun_type_pouetsearch}, preview: function( pblock, what, mods ) { var msg = 'Searches pouet for "' + what.text + '" as type ' + mods.as.text + '.'; pblock.innerHTML = msg; }, execute: function( what, mods ) { var astext = mods.as.text || "prod"; var url_dest = "http://www.pouet.net/search.php?type=" + astext + "&what=" + what.text; Application.activeWindow.open(Utils.url(url_dest)); } })

make sure to fix all the wrong newlines as well ;)

after then you can run a search command like "pouet fairbrausch as group".

is it a shortcut? For me it's just easier to remember "pouet.net" and search there

Plus I often search for something I don't remember the name for (I only remember a scene or the party where it was presented)

You can easily add this functionality to Opera too. I've had this setup for a few years now:

[Search Engine 3]
Name=Pouët Prod Search
Is post=0
Has endseparator=0
Search Type=0

Just add to your search.ini in your profile dir. Or create it using the GUI in prefs which may be quicker for some.

And additional ones for Group etc as you see fit. So i just do something like: ppr photon race
to search from the address bar, but normal like iq says i'd too be already on pouet so just search using the box :) But i have that option should i want it.

i prefer using Firefox 1.x in which i can type "pouet XXX" and it goes directly to what i'm looking for ...most of the times.
