DWT - Dumb Window Terminal

DWT is a simple, sleek emulator based on the VTE widget. Its main features are being nice-looking (according to my personal taste), not being (very) configurable, and being a good companion for tiling window managers like DWM (or my own XDWM fork). That being said, it works flawlessly and looks slick in any GTK+-based environment.

(Non-)Features

  • Mostly-fixed configuration:
    • Grey on black color scheme with using Linux console color set.
    • Converts terminal bell beeps in “urgent” X window flags. No visible or audible terminal bell, besides from that.
    • Non-blinking cursor.
    • Scrollback buffer, but no scrollbar displayed, to save screen real estate. Use Shift-PageUp and Shift-PageDown to scroll.
    • Keybindings to change font size: Use Super-+ and Super-- to change sizes, Super-0 to reset the font.
    • Mouse cursor auto-hide.
  • XTerm-style configurable window title.
  • Clickable URLs. Because on the Internet era being able to quickly open a browser is a must-have feature.
  • Single process, multiple terminal windows: the first time dwt is invoked, it will start a new process; in subsequent times, it will just create new windows in the existing process.
  • Uses current GTK+ widgets and code conventions. Apart from the popover and header bar widgets, modern facilities like GAction, property bindings, and GtkApplication are used.
