Re: jumanji - a web browser

Great!!! I'm using it right at the moment, but I'll have to take a look into the config.h to know all the shortcuts. But the first impression is really promising!

edit: What I have to say is, this browser is as fast as surf, but seems to have a lot more features. Maybe it will even replace uzbl here, which is really slow compared to jumanji or surf.

Re: jumanji - a web browser

Looks very promising. Sort of vimperator lite (as in vimperator but not firefox), which would be really nice. (So far i used vimprobable for that purpose, but i somehow can't rally get to like it..)

One thing i noticed, it segfaults when i try to use hints. (I did what was written in the faq and downloaded the script file and put it in a .config/jumanji/jumanjirc). When i press f seemingly nothing happens, but when i press a number next then it immediately segfaults. Typing letters after the f is fine and results in them being listed in the bottom right (the unfinished commands part, like in vim). When i press escape then everything's fine.
If i can help (maybe a verbose/debug option that's not mentioned in the manpage) then tell me (i'm not too much of a programmer however).

Thank you for pointing that out, I have fixed this with the latest commit.

If you have downloaded the script you have to add the exact path to it in the jumanjirc file. Then, after the page has been loaded, the script will be automatically loaded and you should be able to use >f< for this feature like you can see it on the screenshots.

Best regards

Re: jumanji - a web browser

Nice little project you got here. smile

One question though: how do I download stuffs with Jumanji? For example the input_hinting_mode.js script. If I click it, it opened inside the browser. If I right click and select download, then nothing happen.

Please make sure you have xterm and wget installed or check the configuration file (config.h) for the download_command. If everything is set up fine and you right click and download a file a own terminal should pop up with a running wget instance that is downloading your file.

Best regards

Re: jumanji - a web browser

i would suggest to set up agent because your current one is making a lot of sites unhappy.

Your browser version: jumanji

note, that this would make youtube hml5 work. just use the one that epiphany or chromium uses

Re: jumanji - a web browser

Thanks for the tip neldoreth. I took a peek at config.h and see that the download directory is set to "~/dl/". Once I create that directory, download works. smile

Would be nice if you could configure both download_dir and download_command options from jumanjirc.

Re: jumanji - a web browser

Hello,

I will write something that the download directory will be generated automatically.

You already can do that:

set download_dir ~/foo
set download_command foo %s %s

wonder, thanks for the hint, I will take a look at that.

Best regards

Re: jumanji - a web browser

@neldoreth: amazing project. works beautifully. one small suggestion: can you make default_width and default_height configurable in the jumanjirc?
also, I haven't figured out how to use the search engins defined in the jumanjirc from the FAQ.

Re: jumanji - a web browser

wow nice! Excellent work!

Did you considered the possibility to add an option to follow the hints like Vimium? I found it twice as fast than typing some work or match a couple of numbers.

This is already possible with "set height 800 / set width 800" - I will put all variables online later on, for now you can check the config.def.h or the completion of the set function for that.

This is also already possible, please take a look at the F.A.Q. on the website.

edit: I am sorry, I misread your sentence - I don't know how vimium does that.

@wonder: Which user-agent are exactly using? I tried the same that chromium uses, but it made no difference to me.

Re: jumanji - a web browser

It's absolutely awesome! I'm using Gentoo and registered here just to say that your work is truly amazing.

Last week I discovered zathura, and it became my primary pdf viewer in less than half a day -- and as a devoted TeX user I work with pdfs a lot.
It is just so intuitive and has every single feature I need -- with autorefresh being one of them.

Today I was looking at the zathura FAQ and noticed jumanji. I tried uzbl and surf earlier, but they were lacking something, so I stayed with Opera.

But jumanji has the same feeling as zathura, anf it is the kind of feeling which makes me very comfortable -- the things are just where I suppose them to be.
If you'd implement some kind of password manager I'd probably switch to jumanji the same day.

Once more -- thank you for your work. And please -- don't stop coding smile

Re: jumanji - a web browser

At first it would die on me when i tried to open youtube. I saw (apart from memory info and other stuff) also an error messagge by openoffice and openjdk. So then i deinstalled both (i don't use them anyway atm) and then it worked. (Although not with the note "html5 webm" so probably simply the flash version. I did change the useragent as above but maybe there is some youtube option too that needs to be set to get html5?)

Very nice effoort, neldoreth smile

Shows a combination of letters instead of numbers on the links, like this. I found this way much quicker, because to follow a link you only need two keystrokes that are performed without moving your hands from the home keys (is the only think I really dislike of Vimperator).

Either way, great work!
