Indus

Table of Contents

Indus is a simple clipboard summarizer written in Go. It works by searching for summary of text in clipboard & notifies the user about it.

How is it useful?

I like the three finger tap feature on OSX, it pops up a little frame that shows useful information on selected text. On my primary computer I have to select the text, right click & choose "search with <search engine>". I wanted to make it simpler so I made this tool. With this tool I just have to select the text, run the command (binded to Mod+z) & it shows information on selected text as notification.

Note: I'm using wn for this purpose now, I have a script that passes the clipboard to wn, which is a command line interface to WordNet's database. It's good enough for me, I'm not working on this project anymore.
