|I'm part of a small group that is working on a new set of protocols for terminals and shells, in order to move terminal handling out of the kernel as much as possible, and to replace the huge organically grown mess of ANSI escape sequences, terminfo databases, and so on.|
I'm posting this from 34C3, where I'm asking people the same questions:
- What do you love about terminals?
- What do you hate about terminals?
- If you had to build one from scratch, how would you do it?
If you do not wish to answer in public, you can also write a mail to 34c3-terminal-survey at posteo dot de.
[I'm posting from a throwaway account because my Github links to the work that we have started on this, and I don't want to bias the survey by having you look at it before answering.]
