Terminology at the EFL Dev Day 2014

The 2014 edition of the EFL Dev Day was held in Düsseldorf yesterday. I gave a quick talk about Terminology.

Just like last year, I used Terminology itself to render my talk.

The code is on github. I refactored it a bit and it should be more usable than the single script I had last year.

Terminology 0.7

During the talk I said that the version 0.7 of Terminology would go out soon and within few hours, it was released.

Distro involvement

I complained about the state of Terminology in the various Linux distributions. It is still hard on many distributions to get Terminology. If Terminology is not available in your distribution, please ask the distribution maintainers to package it!

The future

We have some great features planned but I don't know what features people would like to see soon in Terminology.

Here is a quick list of possibilities:

  • Make miniview an awesome scrollbar,
  • Improvements on CPU usage when on battery,
  • Searchable buffer,
  • Zooming on images,
  • Instant Replay to be able to render the terminal from few seconds ago,
  • Splits in tabs (Currently tabs can be in splits but not the other way around),
  • Have more common "tabs",
  • Bold/Italic,
  • Tmux integration,

If you have some nice ideas, I would like to hear about them! Feel free to contact me or open a "Wishlist" task on phab.

I will probably make a poll about those ideas to know what people think is important to add to Terminology.
