Gemini support for w3m

tl;dr I wrote a patch to add Gemini support to w3m.


I started adding Gemini support to w3m. As a user w3m is a great piece of software. It has good HTML support and speaks nearly all other protocols you'll come across while surfing the web#0. It bothered me that I had to use a different tool when I came across a gemini link. Also, you don't often get the chance to add a new protocol to a 28 year old piece of software.

This is still Work in Progress, but has enough features to be usable.
