TermLayoutTermLayout is a text-mode HTML formatter for Unix terminals which supports:
- Ruby markup (multiple
rbelements are stacked)
- Tables (including nesting and alignment)
- Wide characters (uses locale settings from LC_CTYPE, LANG etc)
- Smaller terminal sizes. In some cases a table will still end up being wider than the terminal and not easily reflowable; if that happens then at least each cell should fit. But in many cases TermLayout can arrange for no horizontal scrolling to be necessary.
TermLayout is not a Web browser: it has no facilities for navigating links. It is meant only for formatting text on a terminal using HTML markup. I wrote it when I wanted to page through a document with Ruby markup in
fbterm but couldn't find a text-mode browser that would format this markup correctly.
Download termlayout.py; you will need Python 2 and a command prompt.
- If you are using TermLayout with an annotator generated by Annotator Generator, you might also be interested in this tmux-annotator script which sets up
tmuxwith a "hotkey" to annotate the current screen and display the result in TermLayout.
