    Phoronix: Enlightenment's Terminal Brings In Fancy Features

    Terminology 0.3 has been released, which is the Enlightenment project's own terminal emulator built atop EFL (Enlightenment Foundation Library) components. Terminology is written from scratch and with its v0.3 release it boasts some truly original and innovative features for this terminal emulator. There's embedded support for previewing videos/images and other new inline capabilities...

    I gotta admit, while I tend to stray from gimmicky things, some of these features are downright handy, and the visuals are nice too.

      Terminology looks like a great desktop environment. It only lacks a decent terminal emulator.

          If only rasterman loved the file manager as much as terminology.

            It looks fun to watch, but this "kind" of features excluding tyls ("tyled list"), I don't see any benefit of them.

            Anyway, it is really refreshing to see a new approach for the issue that a lot of people would want to solve. Maybe it will be the starting point for a Total Commander like on Linux that have a better visuals and better integration with video playback, pictures and such.

              I like the image and video previews. But I use i3, so I get annoyed when applications do their own tiling and tabbing. If a user likes that part of Terminology, he'll quickly want to bring another application into one of those tiles.

                The split mode and the tabs are good features IMO.

                  That is your new file manager...

                    If you haven't already you should look into terminal multiplexers, screen/tmux/byobu. Lots of features, can run in the background and get accessed from multiple machines with ssh.

                      I try to avoid using the terminal in general but in some rare cases a split mode is usefull.

                        Over the top

                        I don't really see the need for those things. Browsing through an image-directory is simpler using an external program like evince or feh, which has more advanced features, and accessing URLs by clicking on them is not really new.
                        Overall, I don't like the style of this wm and terminal emulator, but I am happy to see everyone of us has the choice to use whatever he likes best (I use dwm with st from suckless.org) and am happy with it (I get my stuff done), but when people think they get their stuff done with those "features", then why should we stop them?

                          Maybe it's just missing some basic interaction with mouse, like change directory, list and order to be (also) the file manager

                            In my opinion the filemanager is almost good enough. I only miss a few things like "right click -> extract here" or tabs and there are still a few bugs, but on the other hand it already has awesome features like the ability to navigate just by typing text like "Pictures/" or "../".

                              The terminal emulator isn't that bad actually, considering how young it is.
