Description

Lagrange is a graphical client for the Gemini, Gopher, and Finger protocols. It offers modern conveniences familiar from web browsers, such as smooth scrolling, inline image viewing, multiple tabs, visual themes, Unicode fonts, and bookmarks.

Print all internal application events to stdout. Useful for debugging.

--help

-u,  --url-or-search URL | TEXT

Open a URL, or make a search query with given text. This only works if the search query URL has been configured.

Output the version number.

Window options

These options are used to control the currently running Lagrange instance via the command line.

Environment

LAGRANGE_OVERRIDE_DPI

Override the autodetected screen DPI with a user-provided value. Some window systems and/or monitors may not provide an appropriate DPI value, so this enables further tuning the UI scaling in addition to the “UI scale factor” found in Preferences.
