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:
[ ] blink and blink2 attributes need to be supported
[ ] dnd text (to/from terminal)
[ ] dnd file uri's too as text etc.
[ ] general input mode handling improvements (keypad, other key
input, etc.)
[ ] selection of background "wallpapers" (and support them at all -
doesn't right now - should support regular images, animated gifs,
and edje files)
[ ] 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 mode mirrors entry style for touch displays (handle
on_hold flags, 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
[ ] improve selection text extraction logic so its reliable
[ ] 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 conversion
[ ] dnd of file to term offer to paste path, with escapes or paste file
content (if text) with or without escaping
[ ] helpers when executed need to escape path/uri in command buffer
[ ] media - improve position slider to track ucr position as u play
[ ] improve look of meida controls
[ ] 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)
[ ] allow queueing of media (eg music playlist)
[ ] add escapes for displaying media
[ ] add option for cjk double width mode
[ ] apparently there are problems with mutt, screen and tmux? vim
mousewheel scroll suport doesnt work
[ ] possible evas font problem with proggy fonts: http://www.proggyfonts.com/
[ ] alt+return doesn't copt current selection to input line.
[ ] ctrl+shift+c and ctrl+shift+v should do copy & paste
things in future to make it totally kick-butt:
[ ] reflow text on resize
[ ] "tabs" (multiple terminals inside a window) with a nice selector
that looks like e17's wallpaper2 selector a bit :)
[ ] track child process stats like cwd etc. and when launching a new
"tab" or shell use the last child process cwd to put the shell
[ ] 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).
[ ] tiling layout within 1 window to lay out multiple terms in a
flexible split/merge column/row grid setup
[ ] remember tile layouts 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)
[ ] start supporting some of the crazy escape codes that let you
inline images into terminals or just create our own extensions and
then start making replacement "std command" wrappers/replacements
that are prepended to $PATH that can do the right thing when u do
"ls" - i see a list of files and if some are images or documents -
u see thumbnails too. if u cat a jpeg.. u see it. if u cat a url
or html file.. up comes an inline web browser, provide nicer
visual "progessbars" and modified tools like wget that use these
escapes etc. all of these are handled by the media object
