Ducker 2.0.1 has been released. Several features have been added.
- Include an interactive mode
- Small code improvements
Upgrading from previous versions
If you used pip to install Ducker, you can upgrade executing
install -U ducker.
If you got it cloning the
git repository, execute
in the repository folder to upgrade.
If you downloaded the
just replace the old version.
It's great to have an interactive mode, but it's still very buggy.
That's the reason why I haven't made a new release yet. The most
important problem now is that Ducker doesn't support proper page
I made a little hack
to support it up to result 30, but I should find a better solution
before the next release. Besides, I think it would be great to be able
to open various search results at the same time from the interactive
When I solve those issues, I'll update the documentation. Hopefully, we
can publish the 2.0 release within the next two weeks and you won't find
Other news: Ducker is now a Peers Community
project. Peers Community is a community of people interested in free
software and free culture. This is the same community that runs
NotABug, which is where Ducker's code repository
is currently hosted. I want to thank the Peers community for providing
hosting to free software projects like this one and for finding some
bugs in Ducker.
Recently, I discovered a program called
ddgr. It allows making searchs from
the command line with DuckDuckGo, but it's not exactly like Ducker. It
doesn't launch the search in the browser, but directly in the terminal.
From there you can choose which search result you want to open with the
However, that program was incomplete, not up-to-date and it contained
unncesary code. I've made some contributions to make it better and I've
included its functionality in Ducker. That is, Ducker has now an
interactive mode that allows showing results from searches in the
terminal if it's launched without parameters.
Nonetheless, there are still necessary some improvements before publishing
a new release.
