User tools

Awasu's Tools menu provides an easy way to integrate external applications and services without having to go to the trouble of writing a plugin or channel hook.


Awasu provides standard user tools for common operations such as searching Google or looking up the meaning of a word. Most tools work with some text selected in the browser window but others could just open a web page or start another program on your computer.

Managing the tools

The Organize User Tools dialog Open the Organize user tools dialog from the View main menu.

To add a new tool, click on the green plus icon and enter a name [1]. Then enter the command that you want to run [2].

You can get more information about integrating with specific tools by clicking on the More info button.


Send to

Send-to's are a special kind of user tool that work with a feed item or web page [3].

Right-click on a feed item in the item pane to send it to the clipboard, a workpad, someone via email, or one of the many popular web sites such as Digg or Reddit.


Or right-click on a browser tab to do the same for the current web page.


A special Send to popup menu is also available at the bottom of every feed item.
