Powerful command-line bookmark manager. Your mini web!

buku is a powerful bookmark management utility written in Python3 and SQLite3. It is a cmdline solution with a private, portable, merge-able database and browser integration.

buku fetches the title of a bookmarked web page and stores it along with any additional comments and tags. With multiple options to search bookmarks, including regex and a deep scan mode (particularly for URLs), finding a bookmark is very easy. Multiple search results can be opened in the browser at once.

Though a terminal utility, it's possible to add bookmarks to buku without touching the terminal! Refer to the documentation on GUI integration. If you prefer the terminal, thanks to the shell completion scripts, you don't need to memorize any of the options. There's an Easter egg to revisit random forgotten bookmarks too.

buku is too busy to track you - no history, obsolete records, usage analytics or homing.
