Terminal replacement

Recommended Posts

Interesting, looks a bit too bulky though, looks like something you have to run in full screen, which might be a bit inconvenient

I know it's built in electron, I'm talking about the UI, it's made for show and not actual use. I use another Electron based terminal emulator called HyperTerm, and the CPU/RAM usage is quite reasonable.

 

I installed it, but it just gets stuck in an empty terminal, then it errors out after a few minutes.

Ohh right, I remember seeing it on r/unixporn. Are you the author?

 

Either way, really cool to look at - just not that useful... not that it needs to be.

I think he means the amount of space the UI takes up on your screen - it's just a lot of borders around your terminal.


...is there a question here? 🤔

Sauron'stm Product Scores:

Spoiler

Just a list of my personal scores for some products, in no particular order, with brief comments. I just got the idea to do them so they aren't many for now :)

Don't take these as complete reviews or final truths - they are just my personal impressions on products I may or may not have used, summed up in a couple of sentences and a rough score. All scores take into account the unit's price and time of release, heavily so, therefore don't expect absolute performance to be reflected here.

 

-Lenovo Thinkpad X220 - [8/10]

Spoiler

A durable and reliable machine that is relatively lightweight, has all the hardware it needs to never feel sluggish and has a great IPS matte screen. Downsides are mostly due to its age, most notably the screen resolution of 1366x768 and usb 2.0 ports.

 

-Apple Macbook (2015) - [Garbage -/10]

Spoiler

From my perspective, this product has no redeeming factors given its price and the competition. It is underpowered, overpriced, impractical due to its single port and is made redundant even by Apple's own iPad pro line.

 

-OnePlus X - [7/10]

Spoiler

A good phone for the price. It does everything I (and most people) need without being sluggish and has no particularly bad flaws. The lack of recent software updates and relatively barebones feature kit (most notably the lack of 5GHz wifi, biometric sensors and backlight for the capacitive buttons) prevent it from being exceptional.

 

-Microsoft Surface Book 2 - [Garbage - -/10]

Spoiler

Overpriced and rushed, offers nothing notable compared to the competition, doesn't come with an adequate charger despite the premium price. Worse than the Macbook for not even offering the small plus sides of having macOS. Buy a Razer Blade if you want high performance in a (relatively) light package.

 

-Intel Core i7 2600/k - [9/10]

Spoiler

Quite possibly Intel's best product launch ever. It had all the bleeding edge features of the time, it came with a very significant performance improvement over its predecessor and it had a soldered heatspreader, allowing for efficient cooling and great overclocking. Even the "locked" version could be overclocked through the multiplier within (quite reasonable) limits.

 

-Apple iPad Pro - [5/10]

Spoiler

A pretty good product, sunk by its price (plus the extra cost of the physical keyboard and the pencil). Buy it if you don't mind the Apple tax and are looking for a very light office machine with an excellent digitizer. Particularly good for rich students. Bad for cheap tinkerers like myself.

DEX-UI was not made to actually be usable. Inspired by DEX-UI recently a guy called GitSquared made EDEX-UI. This though, is actually very functional. The terminal used can be changed by editing the json like mentioned. If you install git bash you can make it work on windows with a bash terminal.

I do, and you clearly didn't know what you were talking about before.

This is a terminal based on DEX-UI but is built on Electron.

Here are some screenshots and a link to the binaries for macOS, Linux and Windows.

The first link goes to DEX-UI, Seena Burns project. Then the link to more screenshots and are GitSquareds project. So you don't know the difference. Before you share these kind of things please know what you are talking about, and credit the author
