Note that Final Term is under heavy development, and is neither stable or finished.
However, Final Term does contain a bunch of interesting features that make this new terminal emulator very interesting, including:
- inline context menus for items. For example, if the user does a “ls” command, the filenames that are outputted can be clicked and acted upon. want to edit that file with vi? simply click on it in the terminal, and choose “edit with vi”
- command completion. when typing out a command, Final Term provides a drop-down of previous items typed, and filters them down as you type.
- reflow. Final Term reflows terminal output when the window is resized.
Be sure to check out the Final Term website for a list of all the innovative features that this terminal emulator has and is planning.
