bangin - shell script which enables DuckDuckGo-like bangs

Hi there!

I wrote this a few weeks ago and on the advice of an AUR commenter am sharing it here.

bangin is a primitive, portable shell script which enables DuckDuckGo-like bangs. It can be thought of as a simple pure function, for example:

$ bangin 'bangin!hn'
https://hn.algolia.com/?q=bangin

The idea is essentially to allow the decentralisation and customisation of bangs.

The repo can be found here and the AUR package here. The issues in the repo provide some idea of where the project could go next.

Hope some folks can find it useful. smile

No, it didn't "fix" anything. It just shifted the brokeness one space to the right. - jasonwryan

I have not, interesting. At first glance the biggest differentiator appears to be scope; whereas bangin intends to do one thing and do it well (ideally, soon, with surrounding supplementary tooling), Interrobang is a bit more ambitious/monolithic.
