A simple and minimal homepage. Now compatible with WAL and WPG!
The homepage is setup giving you a nice clean search bar which you can easily search your favorite search engine with (by default it's duckduckgo)
If you press enter with nothing in the search bar you'll notice a chart of hotkeys. Each of the letters can be searched alone to quickly go to the associated website.
In addition to just going quickly to those websites you can even search them (or in reddits case quickly go to a subreddit) by typing the letter colon then the search.
For example this will search and goto the WW2 page on wikipedia wi:World War 2 or go to askreddit r:askreddit
All of this is easily customized in a simple table in homepage.html
Install firefox and then get the extention New Tab Override.
Due to a recent firefox update it is no longer possible for extentions to read local files. This means if you want to use this homepage with firefox you need to host a minimal webserver in the background and then have new tab override point to 127.0.0.1 (the address of the local server on your computer)
On linux this is fairly simple. This is assuming you're using arch, if not substitute the commands and directories used in your distro.
pacman -S nginx
sudo chown yourusername:yourusername -R /usr/share/nginx/html
git clone https://github.com/kotajacob/homepage /usr/share/nginx/html
sudo systemctl enable nginx
sudo systemctl start nginx
Then confirm firefox loads the new tab page when you visit http://127.0.0.1/homepage.html
Finally set new tab override to load custom URL with the set focus option enables make the url the following http://127.0.0.1/homepage.html
Install chrome or chromium and then get the extention New Tab Redirect
clone or download the repo
(maybe move it to a sensible place other than downloads)
open homepage.html with chrome
copy the address and set New Tab Redirect to open that address
