Lately I have been working on a new feature for
terminology: render the history in a small
widget that I call the miniview. This feature can be found
in trendy code editors.
It started as an old patch from Galatsanos Panagiotis back in June 2013! I made it work with the current code base and iterated over it.
A picture is worth a thousand words:
The miniview is shown on the right. It can be shown with
hitting Ctrl-Shift-h. (I plan to make keyboard shortcuts
configurable soon, but it will probably not hit
Each character is converted to a single pixel. It is possible to click on it to scroll the terminal to that position in the history.
The widget can be scrolled up or down with the mouse
wheel cause it may not show the whole history on one
PgDown scrolls by
steps of 25 lines while
scrolls by a whole screen.
Ctrl-PgUp/PgDown do the same.
Ctrl-Shift-h or the blue cross on
the top left corner will close the miniview.
Now it's time to fix some bugs to be able to release
terminology 0.6 next month!
