    The bulk of what this tool does can be replaced with a shell function that does `cd $(grep -w ^$1 ~/.config/gogo.conf | cut -f2 -d' ')`, where `$1` is the argument supplied to the function.

    If you’ve already installed fzf (and you really should), then you can get a far better experience than even zsh’s excellent “completion” facilities. I use something like `cd $(fzf -1 +m -q "$1" < ~/.cache/to)` (My equivalent of gogo.conf is `~/.cache/to`).

    Okay, thanks for letting us know.

    This addresses the ugettext error.

    z / j / jump sounds better to me since you don’t need to create any Bookmark but only visit the folder once.

    Thanks for this useful utility. I followed the instructions but when I execute gogo I get this:

    Traceback (most recent call last):
      File "/home/USER/bin/gogo.py", line 35, in 
        _ = t.ugettext
    AttributeError: 'NullTranslations' object has no attribute 'ugettext'

    I am using Archlinux and python 3.6.4

    Could be library dependency problem or version mismatch? Any ideas?
