Kitty terminal is awesome, and you should definitely try it.
Only thing I found tricky is how to bind termination of the running process (sending SIGINT on Ctrl+C) to a different key combination.
I like when all applications have consistent hotkeys. And the different meaning of most common hotkey (copy) in terminal always bothers me. So I use
ctrl+c to copy and
ctrl+shift+c for process interruption.
To fix that, add to kitty.conf:
map ctrl+c copy_to_clipboard map ctrl+v paste_from_clipboard map ctrl+shift+c send_text all \x03 # SIGINT
PS: And by the way, if you want to get nice color scheme for Kitty, you could use Terminal Color Scheme Designer, export to
Termite and replace
If IKEA made game consoles, it would be Waveshare Game Hat. Some assembly required, but you can get it working in 10 minutes without any special skills. And no soldering!
After that, you've got all possibilities of standard Raspberry Pi (which are endless) in the portable factor. Besides playing games, you could easily install Kodi, and watch videos and Youtube. And the list of compatible games goes far beyond console emulators. Personally, I recommend:
- Retro City Rampage (DOS version is in Steam folder)
- Wolfenstein 3D
- Dangerous Dave
- Alladin (Sega Genesis)
- Lost Vikings (Sega Genesis)
- Sokoban/Shove it (Sega Genesis)
- Castlevania: Symphony of the Night (PSX)
- All these newly released Genesis games like "Angry Birds", "Tanglewood" and "Xeno Crysis"
This is standard Raspberry Pi running Linux, not custom chip. As you probably know Raspberry Pi 3 can handle 1080 movies and PSX games without any issues.

When you type
src [command] (autocompletion works here!), it will open script file in
$PATH, Fish function or alias definition in your favorite text editor.

Don't try to save money on cables. Buy something good and reasonably priced, like Anker.
Double Commander doesn't look as bad as at first glance if you configure it properly! Looks modern, right?
And it's still the best file manager in Linux. Tuning and configuration possibilities are endless. If you invest some time learning non-always-obvious configuration, you can make it work exactly as you want. Sweet.Read More →
I've implemented little script that allows to call Fish Shell prompt from any app. Very handy for running single commands from Double Commander or Sublime Text:
- Prompts for single Fish command in left bottom corner of given application window
- To make benefit of Fish shell autocompletion and history
- Closes after one command is executed
- If command fails, leaves window to inspect error message
See this animated gif for example.
For example you want execute
git clone [email protected]:dmi3/bin.git in current directory from Double Commander:
Shift+F2and terminal window appears in left bottom corner of Double Commander window
- First you want
cloneto be autocompleted using Fish
- During clone process you want to see
gitcommand output to monitor progress
- If everything is ok, prompt will close
- In case of error you will have chance to read error message
