bookmarking with uzbl and org-capture

I found this in a russian e-mail list archive (I haven’t found it again)

I use this little trick to capture bookmarks from my uzbl-browser.

Just add:

@cbind <Ctrl>e = sh ’emacsclient “org-protocol://capture://\\@/\\@”‘

to your


Every time I find something useful on the web I just press <Ctrl>e in my uzbl-browser and the current URL is send to my emacs. In emacs I can now turn the URL in a task, note, whatever and refile it to one of my projects. This way the information (the link) i stored where I need it.

My current org-capture setup is based on the excellent guide by Bernt Hansen.
