Copying a YubNub command to Yahoo Open Shortcuts

The amazing fuska has come up with another amazing command. It's called copy and it copies any YubNub command to Yahoo Open Shortcuts.

The string of YubNub commands that fuska used to implement it is a thing of beauty:

y !${action=set} ${name=%s} {url %s }{echops}

Integration with Yahoo Open Shortcuts

Shantanu Oak has made an easy way to add YubNub to Yahoo Open Shortcuts. Just go here and press ok.

Then you can access all the YubNub commands! For example, !yb weather 90210

Positional parameters problem solved by fuska

fuska is very clever.

He implemented positional parameters by creating a command called %. Yes it is called %. So essentially you can do % 1, % 2, % 3, etc.

For example, the googlocal command:

gloc -what {% 1 %s} -where {% 2 %s}[no url encoding]

I was quite stunned when I saw this example, and it took me a couple of minutes to understand how % works its magic. I am so impressed.

Feature Request: Positional Parameters

Vincent Borghi had an interesting feature request: positional parameters. So instead of typing

gloc -what pizza -where seattle

you could just go

gloc pizza seattle

The command itself would be written with $1, $2, ... to indicate the first word, second word, etc.

Would someone be willing to write (and host) a command (call it, say, positional) that other commands could in turn call?
