here's a short list of things i think we can do in the short to medium term to
make it a first-class terminal:
[ ] edje objects need to be able to swallow sub-objects (and specify
group, text, signals etc.)
[ ] vt100-compatibility: pass all of http://invisible-island.net/vttest/ tests!
[ ] general input mode handling improvements (keypad, other key
input, etc.)
[ ] apparently there are problems with mutt, screen and tmux? vim
mousewheel scroll suport doesnt work
[ ] tyls code is just horrible. fix it.
[ ] better info in tyls -m
[ ] need help screen/page/info with keybindings
[ ] tabs: reordering should be possible
[ ] splits need to size only by steps in font size (elm feature)
[ ] blink and blink2 attributes need to be supported
[ ] selection of background "wallpapers" (and support them at all -
doesn't right now - should support regular images, animated gifs,
and edje files)
[ ] theme selector could be a whole lot better (decent large preview
maybe with cursor, selections and bell?)
[ ] scrollbar (elm scroller that mirrors the term smart size/position
- gives us fingerscroll - layer on top of term smart, stick
invisible rect inside to track for scrolling etc.)
[ ] selection off edge scrolls in that direction (as per selection
mode too if it gets NEAR an edge)
[ ] selection should have nice visible handles on the start/end so u can
drag and change its size once there (theme thing - red blinky
things now)
[ ] selection mode mirrors entry style for touch displays (handle
on_hold flags, etc.)
[ ] improve selection text extraction logic so its reliable (seems to
be a bug where we keep the newline etc. bit flags set when they should
be reset in the pty array)
[ ] fast text/regex searching similar to urxvt
[ ] search in terminal (and keep highlighting until search cleared)
[ ] logging of terminal to file
[ ] number recognition with base (hex/dec/oct/binary etc.) conversion
with some overlay/popup on mouseover
[ ] dnd of file to term offer to paste path, with escapes or paste file
content (if text) with or without escaping
[ ] media - improve position slider to track position as u play
[ ] improve look of meida controls (youtube like better with mouse move show)
[ ] make media controls an api where controls are provided by the media
object owner so they can be custom placed/swallowed/handled better
[ ] media controls need to have zoom controls for all formats
[ ] media controls need next/prev page controls for paged media (ps/pdf)
[ ] add better handling of music files (with just playbar+vol, no image)
[ ] display queue of media visually and allow deletion from queue etc.
[ ] add option for cjk double width mode
[ ] possible evas font problem with proggy fonts: http://www.proggyfonts.com/
[ ] key controls to begin/change/end selections
[ ] key controls to hilight visible links and select them
things in future to make it totally kick-butt:
[ ] maybe want a new "tab" sel width that slides/fades in on mouseover on top
that lists miniature thumbs like current sel does but in a linear
way along the top
[ ] support double-width when reflowing text on resize
[ ] track mem and iowait and cpu stats for child procs and their
children and display them as little overlays in the terminal so u
know if your "grep -r /" is cpu or io bound and what is eating up
all your cpu cycles or causing a tonne of hdd interrupts etc. -
send results of these stats to theme with messages much like
cpufreq, battery etc. do in e17 so theme can display as bars,
dials or anything it likes (text, led's etc. too).
[ ] remember split layouts/tabs and be able to restore them and at least as
much of child processes as the term can manage reasonably reliably
[ ] split it out into a library - maybe just as part of elementary and
make a terminal widget where you can specify your own read/write
funcs for the term fd etc. so u can make a custom bit of code that
uses the terminal widget as if it were stdin/out but just as
loopback within the app (ie don't exec process - just create pty
and offer read/write to/from it)
