I made a very basic update which changes how "search -u" works... I changed only a single line of code

if (!url.startsWith("http://") && !url.startsWith("https://")) {

to just

if (!url.contains("://")) {

What does this do you might ask? Well, it allows you to do something fancy like this:

search -u gopher://gopherpedia.com

Or....

search -u ssh://kevin@192.168.1.43/#Pi

These will only work if you have the appropriate apps installed which can handle intents from these schemes. Overbite Android for gopher, and ConnectBot can handle telnet://, ssh://, and of course local://

This APK is unofficial and not provided by the main developer. I am providing this as a convenience as I am unsure how active the developer is(and I am very impatient). I do hope the main developer can just implement this in the official market app, as it is very very useful to have. This can also be a nice proof-of-concept for both the main developer and anybody following the project that SSH and other features are very possible.

Depending on if the developer adds a "ssh" command just for connecting into ConnectBot, I may make another unofficial APK which adds an "ssh" command which connects to any app that can handle "ssh://" URI scheme intents, and properly parse parameters and uses your T-UI username as the default username when connecting. So commands like "ssh 192.168.1.43" should be very possible.

Anyways, enjoy!

I've been searching for a launcher like this for quite while, at one point I was thinking of writing one myself, but now I don't need to. Thank you so much, I will definitely be putting in a donation soon. There are a couple things I'd love to see in a future version. I like that -u is supported with the search command, however I'd personally like a more general "open" command that goes through the intent system. This will enable apps that have schemas in their android manifest file to properly handle the requested URI. It would also be awesome if there was a way to say open a ConnectBot profile. My icon-based home screen had a folder with my most commonly used SSH locations for super quick access. Another small suggestion would be to have a "curl" like command available. I have some URLs on my home network I primarily use for home automation. If say I could create an alias in this launcher to curl a URL and print out the text from the Web server, that would make this shell immensely more useful. Also, being able to view your IP address would be nice. Tried running ifconfig, but it didn't display anything back for me on the shell. Other than those, this is a great launcher, keep up the awesome work!
