mintty Integration ======================= I've been using mintty for a while now, but there's no good/free way for me to get a feature that I want, tabs! I looked around and decided that this project was the best candidate for me to sink my teeth in. I've added (hacked) my way into getting tabbed mintty along with a few additional features. A few of these features required me to modify both DockPanel Suite and mintty. I have already submitted a (simple) patch to the maintainers of mintty, I really hope it becomes part of the distribution. For DockPanel Suite, my changes are made locally. I will eventually put it up in case anyone else want to take a stab at fixing additional problems with it. Hotkeys ======= SuperPutty now hooks into WH_KEYBOARD_LL to detect hotkeys. At first, I tried to use RegisterHotKeys, but that has certain limitations that prevented me from using it. However, since I am too lazy to write my own code, I've copied and pasted a hook I saw online for WH_KEYBOARD_LL. This required me to upgrade the project to .NET 4.0. With all that said and done, SuperPutty now have hotkey support! I don't think I will make this configurable, at least not in the near future. What I have added (read hardcoded) into the app now: Alt + m : new mintty tab Alt + left : previous tab Alt + right : next tab Alt + h : hide/show the menu at the top Ctrl + 1-8 : select tab in that position Ctrl + 9 : last tab Tab text changes ================ For the putty and mintty panel, I have hooked into a winapi event to detect when the title gets changed. What this means is that if your mintty/putty window title changes, the tab for that session will reflect the changes as well. Patched mintty tab text color support ===================================== I have submitted a patch to mintty at http://code.google.com/p/mintty/issues/detail?id=337. What this patch does is that it "clones" the console's output to stdout. This version of SuperPutty will detect the output on stdout and sets the color of the text on the tab. This lets you know if there are output waiting to be seen in another tab. I will upload the patched version of mintty when I figure out how :). Various hacks for focus ======================= I have tried to capture a lot of various windows event to allow the child window to become focused. Many of these took hours, but it is still not complete. There are still a few bugs here and there :(. I am not a win API guy, so I am just cobbling these hacks together at a slow pace. It's in a usable state now (I hope). Removed more border! ===================== On win7, I am seeing an additional border when putty/mintty is embedded. I also removed these. I am not sure how this will affect other version of windows :(. Added checkboxes into view items ================================ Under the view menu, when you select an option to show/hide, it now has a checkbox by it. Hide quick connect bar ====================== There's now an option (under View) to hide the quick connect bar. Since I am mainly using mintty, I really don't have a use for this. I am also a big fan of the minimal look and feel. I am using this with session tree view, quick connect, and menu bar completely hidden.
