You can also use your local clone with git send-email.


A multi-file pager, initially designed for reading YouTube video lists generated by omnavi.

See man ./navipage.1 (or man navipage if navipage is already installed) for extensive information on how to use navipage.


To install:

git clone https://git.sr.ht/~smlavine/navipage
cd navipage
sudo make install

To uninstall:

sudo make uninstall

Feel free to modify config.mk to fit your local installation needs.

navipage is intended to be built using GNU make. The only known POSIX-noncompliant code is this ifdef statement in config.mk.


To compile with debug symbols, set DEBUG before running make, like DEBUG=1 make. Source code symbols will be present when debugging with tools like gdb ./navipage or valgrind --leak-check=full --log-file=errors ./navipage.
