Desktop Coral - Clever concept
The other day we wrote about a nifty Yahoo widget called Informer that's an extremely customizable toolbar. One of the commenters, "Change", was wondering whether there's a way to reserve the screen space associated with toolbar like Informer so that other applications won't cover it up.. I spent a few minutes searching on the Internet before coming up with the free DesktopCoral.. I have to admit that this is quite a clever concept, and there are a variety of reasons where it could be useful.

Web Link Captor takes a list of plaintext items, and builds an output document containing a list of url-linked results based on web searches for the items. It's a way to quickly build a clickable list of items from just their names, suitable for posting on your blog or a forum, etc.

Features:

  • Friendly GUI lets you build flexible sets of processing steps to parse plaintext input lists and perform search and output functions.
  • You can save and load projects and script configurations for easy re-use.
  • Uses a set of standalone utility scripts that can be run without the windows front end GUI, and can be easily modified and expanded.
  • The included backend scripts are in Python (but other languages can be used).
  • Uses caching to avoid repeating web searches unnecessarily.
  • Comes with output formatters for HTML, BBCode, Markdown/Wikipedia.
  • Comes with searching engines for google, and bing/opensearch (which can handle amazon, wikipedia, and many others).
  • Flexible scoring system lets you interactively or programmatically tweak your results to get the best list of links.
