Are there any objections against adding that script to the "Tips and tricks" section of the article? --[[User:Ayekat|Ayekat]] ([[User talk:Ayekat|talk]]) 17:51, 5 February 2017 (UTC)

Add wrapper script for dwb-like session handling

I've recently written and started using a "wrapper" script around qutebrowser that uses --basedir and some symlinking from /run to set up separate directories for data/cache/runtime files, while sharing the same config file location, in order to somewhat mimic the behaviour of dwb when it comes to sessions. The script is available here. The-Compiler seems to focus more on making the WebEngine backend more mature (see GitHub issue #572 -- and I fully support that), so it does not seem like that behaviour is going to be added to qutebrowser itself anytime soon, yet I can imagine that especially ex-dwb users might appreciate it. Are there any objections against adding that script to the "Tips and tricks" section of the article? --Ayekat (talk) 17:51, 5 February 2017 (UTC)
