README.rst

A keyboard-centric VTE-based terminal, aimed at use within a window manager
with tiling and/or tabbing support.

Termite looks for the configuration file in the following order:
``$XDG_CONFIG_HOME/termite/config``, ``~/.config/termite/config``,
``$XDG_CONFIG_DIRS/termite/config``, ``/etc/xdg/termite/config``.

Termite's exit status is 1 on a failure, including a termination of the child
process from an uncaught signal. Otherwise the exit status is that of the child
process.

DEPENDENCIES
============

The `vte-ng <https://github.com/thestinger/vte-ng>`_ project is required until
VTE exposes the necessary functions for keyboard text selection and URL hints
(if ever). A simple patch `has been submitted upstream
<https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=679658#c10>`_ but they're unwilling
to expose functionality that's not required by GNOME Terminal even if there's
no extra maintenance (it already exists internally) and no additional backwards
compatibility hazards.

If no browser is configured and $BROWSER is unset, xdg-open from xdg-utils is
used as a fallback.

BUILDING
========
::

git clone --recursive https://github.com/thestinger/termite.git
cd termite && make

if [[ $TERM == xterm-termite ]]; then
. /etc/profile.d/vte.sh
__vte_osc7
fi
::

For example, with bash:

.. code:: sh

if [[ $TERM == xterm-termite ]]; then
. /etc/profile.d/vte.sh
__vte_prompt_command
fi

SELECTION MODE
--------------

+-----------------------------------+-----------------------------------------------------------+
| ``q`` or ``escape`` or ``ctrl-[`` | enter insert mode |
+-----------------------------------+-----------------------------------------------------------+

+-----------------------------------+-----------------------------------------------------------+
| ``W`` or ``ctrl-right`` | forward WORD (non-whitespace) |
+-----------------------------------+-----------------------------------------------------------+
| ``E`` | forward to end of WORD (non-whitespace) |
+-----------------------------------+-----------------------------------------------------------+

+-----------------------------------+-----------------------------------------------------------+
| ``^`` | beginning-of-line (first non-blank character) |
+-----------------------------------+-----------------------------------------------------------+
| ``$`` or ``end`` | end-of-line |
+-----------------------------------+-----------------------------------------------------------+
| ``g`` | jump to start of first row |
+-----------------------------------+-----------------------------------------------------------+
| ``G`` | jump to start of last row |
+-----------------------------------+-----------------------------------------------------------+

+-----------------------------------+-----------------------------------------------------------+
| ``ctrl-d`` | move cursor a half screen down |
+-----------------------------------+-----------------------------------------------------------+
| ``ctrl-b`` | move cursor a full screen up (back) |
+-----------------------------------+-----------------------------------------------------------+
| ``ctrl-f`` | move cursor a full screen down (forward) |
+-----------------------------------+-----------------------------------------------------------+
| ``y`` | copy to CLIPBOARD |
+-----------------------------------+-----------------------------------------------------------+
| ``/`` | forward search |
+-----------------------------------+-----------------------------------------------------------+
| ``?`` | reverse search |
+-----------------------------------+-----------------------------------------------------------+
| ``u`` | forward url search |

+-----------------------------------+-----------------------------------------------------------+
| ``n`` | next search match |
+-----------------------------------+-----------------------------------------------------------+
| ``N`` | previous search match |
+-----------------------------------+-----------------------------------------------------------+

During scrollback search, the current selection is changed to the search match
and copied to the PRIMARY clipboard buffer.

With the text input widget focused, up/down (or tab/shift-tab) cycle through
completions, escape closes the widget and enter accepts the input.

In hints mode, the input will be accepted as soon as termite considers it a
unique match.

PADDING
=======

Internal padding can be added by using CSS to style Termite. Adding
the following snippet to ``$XDG_CONFIG_HOME/gtk-3.0/gtk.css`` (or
``~/.config/gtk-3.0/gtk.css``) will add uniform 2px padding around the edges:

.. code:: css

.termite {
padding: 2px;
}

This can also be used to add varying amounts of padding to each side via
standard usage of the CSS padding property.

TERMINFO
========

When working on a remote system with termite's terminfo missing, an error might
occur:

::

Error opening terminal: xterm-termite

To solve this issue, install the termite terminfo on your remote system.

On Arch Linux:

::

pacman -S termite-terminfo

On other systems:


::

wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/thestinger/termite/master/termite.terminfo
tic -x termite.terminfo
