webpager

Pipes html from stdin into a browser tab

Webpager

Pipe html chunks to the browser:

$ echo "<h1>beep</h1>" | webpager
$ echo "*beep*" | markdown | webpager

Heavily inspired by bcat by Ryan Tomayko which was in turn inspired by TextMate's html output by Allan Odgaard.

npm install -g webpager
  • peek at incoming stream;
  • don't include a html header if the stream already does;
  • if the stream doesn't look like html then send as plaintext
