Final Term is available in Gentoo Sunrise

Final Term is an interesting and promising terminal emulator with advanced interactive features like semantic text menus, smart command completion, GUI terminal controls, reflow support and more.

I contributed an initial Hungarian translation for the project just to soon find myself hacking on an ebuild, and on minor features. All in all, as of 2013-07-11, Final Term is now available in Gentoo’s Sunrise overlay. You can find usage instructions here.

Thanks to:

  • Philipp Emanuel Weidmann for creating Final Term and blogging about it
  • GitHub user Richard-W for letting me know that I’m not the only one who would like to use Final Term on Gentoo
  • Julian Ospald (hasufell) for reviewing my ebuilds, suggesting a modification to the build system, and finally merging the ebuild into Sunrise
  • the always helpful people on #gentoo-dev-help and #gentoo-sunrise
