Lightweight split-screen terminal emulator with vim keys
FourTerm is ultra-lightweight terminal emulator with vim-like keyboard shortcuts for window navigation, active web and file links, search feature and sexy color "Solarized" scheme with day/night fast switching. It is based on ValaTerm and comparable to Terminator.
- Very small (only about 35 kB binary on Intels).
- Faster than Terminator (written in Vala/C).
- Four terminals setup by default.
- Starts ultra-fast. Exits even faster!
- Built-in Solarized color scheme.
- Dark/light color scheme switch using Super/Win + c combination.
- Vim-like key mapping. Try Super/Windows key + hjkl.
- Active terminal is highlighted.
- Comes with Terminus font dependency and setting.
- Allows to choose your font, scrollback, scrollbar and optional transparency.
- Supports any number of terminal columns and rows.
- No context menu, no cursor changes (easy to select even links).
- Recognizes bactraces of Ruby and Python.
- Right click opens browser or editor.
- previous term (ALT+LEFT, WIN+H, WIN+P)
- next term (ALT+RIGHT, WIN+H, WIN+N)
- bellow term (ALT+DOWN, WIN+J)
- above term (ALT+UP, WIN+K)
- Resizing do not work after upgrade to GTK+ 3.X. Do not resize. Send patches!
- More backtrace support (Perl, Java...) - SEND PATCHES!
- Fedora packages.
- Effective searching in the history. No more scrolling.
We will provide RPMs for Fedora very soon. See bellow on how to compile.
- glib-2.0 >= 2.6
- gtk+-2.0 >= 2.16
- vte >= 0.20
- valac >= 0.10.0 but >= 0.12.1 is better if you using vte >= 0.26
- gcc or Clang/LLVM
How To Compile
Tutorial for Fedora:
# yum -y install git waf vala glib2-devel gtk3-devel vte3-devel # git clone git://github.com/lzap/fourterm.git # cd fouterm # ./waf configure --with-gtk3 # ./waf # build/fourterm
The same for other distributions. If you don't have waf package, you can use ./waf script instead of system-wide installation.
FourTerm was initially forked from ValaTerm, work of Jacques-Pascal Deplaix. Thanks!
