@mattrose I wanted to be able to run it from the local repo. Last time I tried I had problems with dependencies (don't remember exactly which).
Matt Rose
@mattrose
If you do brew install terminator and then check out the code, you should be able to run it from your local git repo, with the right python install. I have a script that calls /opt/homebrew/Cellar/terminator/2.1.1/libexec/bin/python3.9 terminator "$@"
in the local repo that launches terminator.
Matt Rose
@mattrose
It's actually how I do a lot of development. I do have a linux laptop but nobody makes laptops as well as apple, and it's the one I usually use.
Fernando Basso
@FernandoBasso
Yeah, apples hardware is incredible.
Fernando Basso
@FernandoBasso
@mattrose How do you run that script? On Linux I use bashrun, gmrun, or make a simple shortcut.
I mean, do you run it from another terminal instance?
Matt Rose
@mattrose
I wrapped the script using something called Platypus.
Fernando Basso
@FernandoBasso
Thanks.
Matt Rose
@mattrose
I really want to wrap it as a proper app but gtk-mac-builder (which is the only thing designed to wrap python gtk applications into mac apps), is just really broken, and I don't feel up to going through the process of fixing everything in somebody else's project right now.
Fernando Basso
@FernandoBasso
I have problems with my br-abnt2 keyboard on mac. It is recognized as such, but doesn't work as such. Alt fails to work, for example. I installed terminator from brew, but many shorcuts don't work because of that.
In my 6 months using mac, the only thing I like is the hardware. I don't like the OS and the user interface.
Matt Rose
@mattrose
Yeah, What I did was remap most of the keybindings I use to their mac equivalents. There are some weird gtk problems with this (GTK gets zero testing on macOS I find), but if you stick with it it does kinda work
Matt Rose
@mattrose
Thanks again for responding to issues @Vulcalien.

Glad to help the project!

Hey! Are we planning on a new release? We have made quite a few changes Since 2.1.1
Matt Rose
@mattrose
Planning on one, I just have to find the time to put one together. I had one half done a few weeks ago, but I got busy again. I'll see if I can find the time this weekend

Hey! I'm trying to make an argument for the terminator command rn, so i can split terminals via something like terminator --hsplit.

I've found the hsplit and vsplit functions, but i can't seem to figure out how to get the uuid of the current terminal i'm in. I've tried a few functions via the TERMINATOR class or the ipc, but i can't seem to find anything

Matt Rose
@mattrose
You want the remotinator command.
Nigma1337
@Nigma1337
Woah
Matt Rose
@mattrose
You might want to read the code if you're using master. I'm not sure if all of the options are documented correctly.

hey, has anyone heard of anyone trying to get the escape characters for link to work in terminator,
for example

echo -e '\e]8;;http://example.com\aThis is a link\e]8;;\a'

works well in gnome terminal, but turns out regular text only in terminator

my end use case would be to build a .bashrc add-on that would display a clickable menu of shell commands when in certain directories

terminator uses the same terminal library in the backend as gnome-terminal, so it should work. It works on my instance of terminator
George Rey
@georey:gnuradio.org

strange -- doesn't work for me . . . that is, works in the gnome-terminal but on inside terminator :-( any suggestions?
Matt Rose
@mattrose
That is usually a function of the shell to display characters, so I would see if there are any differences in the environment. Is gnome-terminal starting a login shell whereas terminator isn't?
George Rey

ok, I see what happened -- "In April 2020, we started to move Terminator to GitHub" ; the latest version of terminator in the github repo is 2.1.1; -- while I had a package installed from apt had a version of 1.90
in terminator 2.1.1 I confirm that the escape sequence to form a link, does work corrrectly.
George Rey
@georey:gnuradio.org
[m]
ha! I can even see the handler code, in terminal.py:970 -- splendid! -- the osc-8 method added by Rose on 2020-07-20 -- so it's a fairly new development :-)
Matt Rose
@mattrose
Huh, that was definitely me, but I don't remember doing that. What Linux distro are you running that has that 1.90 version. Ubuntu?
George Rey
@georey:gnuradio.org
[m]
Ubuntu 20.04.4 LTS
Matt Rose
@mattrose
Ah. I figured, I'll be super-happy when Ubuntu 22.04 comes out as that will have later versions that are far less buggy.

relevant news on our competition
This company : https://www.warp.dev/
Has raised 30M USD to develop a terminal emulator (!!) commercially
it is done in rust (and probably WASM) primarily for web use

I imagine their selling point is that they will log everything you do in the terminal, forever, and make it available for the paying party to inspect,

In any case, it might be relevant to be aware of the features they bring in to the world of terminals, and possibly copy some features to our project

@mattrose
Funny you should mention that. I actually played with a beta copy of warp for an afternoon, and was really unimpressed. It was trying too hard to be an IDE that it really got in the way of basic terminal functionality
Matt Rose
@mattrose
Terminal Emulators are suddenly a hot space to be in again.
Matt Rose
@mattrose
There's new ones coming up all the time and I usually give them a try. There's only 2 so far that compete with Terminator IMNSHO. iTerm2 and Tilix, and Gnunn stopped developing Tilix a few years back. I usually look to iTerm2 for inspiration for new features. Most of them rely on some co-operation from the libvte author, who is really busy and doesn't have time to implement functionality just for me.
Fernando Basso
@fernandobasso_gitlab
I think Kitty also worth mentioning as a powerful terminal emulator. It also brings new ideas to the table.

@fernandobasso_gitlab that looks like an older version of preferences gui, this is what it looks like to me from repo's master
