Google RIA client that is a CLI

June 3, 2008

I was forwarded this Google AJAX based client that resembles a command shell interface. This is cool and strangely functional at the same time. A dialog with the client goes like this:

Goosh goosh.org 0.4.3-beta #1 Mon, 02 Jun 08 22:28:01 UTC Google/Ajax

Welcome to goosh.org - the unofficial google shell.

This google-interface behaves similar to a unix-shell.
You type commands and the results are shown on this page.

goosh is written by Stefan Grothkopp <grothkopp@gmail.com> 
it is NOT an official google product!

Your language has been set to: en (use lang to change it) 

Enter help or h for a list of commands.

Now I think this is certainly a rich internet application or RIA because it meets the (vague) criteria. It is much more interactive and responsive than a ‘classic’ web application.

Now is this going to be scriptable?
