Walgot v0.2.0

Sunday, November 20, 2022


I’m happy to announce Walgot v0.2.0, a TUI client for wallabag, which come with many improvements.

v0.2.0 is close to being “feature complete” for my use cases. I’m happy to add features for things I don’t use if other people use walgot and require some of the missing things (eg: tag and annotations). The main item I’m not sure about for feature completeness is about a full offline mode… I’m still thinking about pros and cons :).

The release note can be found below. I also added a couple of new screenshots:

The release note of the v0.2.0:

Added features:

  • Copy URL (original or public) to clipboard via Y keybind
  • Save a new entry on wallabag (“N”)
  • Delete entry on wallabag (“D”)
  • Search - Search for exact term (case insensitive) in article title ("/")
  • Filter for public articles in table view (“p”)
  • Toggle for public status (“P”)
  • Open article link in default browser (“O”)

And some UI improvements:

On the article reading view:

  • Include all links footnotes instead of mid text
  • Adapt reading view if screen size is small
  • Display status (starred, new, public) in reading view footer
  • Improve detail view with fixed title and % read
  • Adapt footer depending on term height and width

On the listing view:

  • Adapt list view based on screen width to optimize info display

Bug fixes:

  • Add notif after deleting an entry
  • Add notif message after adding an entry
  • Make scroll smoother when reading an article
  • Prevent crash during reloading when trying to select an entry


  • Maintenance: Upgrade dependencies
  • Add some unit tests (needs a lot more)
  • Add automated build on sourcehut

Overall, a fun project to work on, the wallabag API1 is easy, the wallabago library2 too. And I enjoy more and more the TUI framework (and used libraries) bubbletea3. Makes me want to redo GTL with it, or find another cool TUI project to create :).
