VTE is the widget that delivers the terminal functionality to Gnome Terminal, and quite a few other derivatives.
applications based on VTE
features I'm interested in
- terminal logging
- I do high-profile tech support, and I need to CYA by showing that I did the right thing.
- better events
- For more flexible Lua integration
- the accessibility part of VTE has at least some events available
- some notes on existing events:
- more thorough API in general
- for better Lua integration
- bug 604837 added introspection capability (I'm pretty sure that's this functionality!!)
