known problems

resize does not work due to an upstream node-ncurses problem. nothing I can do until node-ncurses handles resizing the main window properly. T_T

todo

  • proper error notification (via statusbar, not console.error's pipe to error.log)
  • tweet search
  • highlighting (possibly notifications? could abuse libnotify for linux systems)
  • last mentions
  • on-the-fly filter management
  • tweet lookup (by id)
  • follow/unfollow user
  • block/unblock user
  • manage current blocks
  • view user profile
  • alter own profile
  • set avatar (?)
  • eval command (to allow for quick math operations or the like?)
  • get data for specific lineId (special data, like tweet id? mentioned users?)
  • increase flexibility, more configurability (scrolling, prompt text)
