lynx -source does one very neat thing: the URL goes in, neat HTML goes out. With w3m I can either pick --dump_source, which prints the wasm in stdout and --dump, which prints the rendered page as it would appear on screen, I can't find an option to make it print the HTML.

I could find a cli wasm interpreter and pipe curl into it, but I figured many more people would have lynx already installed rather than some random cli wasm interpreter.

I landed here when I was searching the aur for "nyaa" the Go TUI, Then I four your "nyaash"

A fantastic idea and well designed tool !

Thanks for the work and maintaining the PKGBUILD.

A very nice clean "sh" shell script. You didnt even forget to ship the "README" and "man" pages. Very well done. And even a dmenu helper. Very well done !

Not wanting to sound demanding, but I have a question/request.

My question is, could you, eventually, adapt it to be able to use the "w3m" browser ? Instead of being forcebly "tied" to the lynx browser ?

Therefore : - changing the mandatory the dependency on "lynx" to optional dependency. - adding an optional dependency on "w3m"

This way the user could choose is prefered one. Without being forced to download one he doesn use. Even though both are relatevly small lean packages.

There are many of us that in fact use w3m (or lynx). And in a daily basis. Your hear many people talk about "text browsing" on the Internet, but many of them just tried it once and then forget about it. Somehow "lynx" gets all the fame and mentions.

Meanwhile "w3m" is also very hackable, and still very well maintained and updated by Debian Packagers.

Check the official repos,, and this guy who has done an amazing work with tips on using w3m on the 21th century,, and (youtube)

Thanks in advance.
