Where has Termux been all my Android life?
18th August 2016
After battling for YEARS trying to find a decent terminal
setup for Android, fighting with awful shells, terrible
coreutils and ridiculous file-system hierarchies, suddenly I
It's, so, much, better
I have bash
I have GNU coreutils
I have Python3
I have emacs (I have tried to install Emacs on my phone
SO many times before and failed)
I can install stuff (no idea where it comes from but yeah)
I can make it keep running in background to use my phone
as a server
Suddenly, phones are not so bad. With CyanogenMod and
F-Droid I can make a
powerful phone run mostly Free Software, and with Termux and
hacker's keyboard I can make it not even suck!
The world just became a little bit better.
