I'm going to betray my prejudices here but, from the xiki website:

For example type: git, bootstrap, mysql, mongo, rails, node, coffee, js, dom, jquery, svg, ruby code, file paths, url's, shell commands, etc.

...they're clearly marketing towards a particular demographic.

Re: Terminology. Enlightenment makes a terminal of the future.

They said:

I saw:

git, mysql, lots of gibberish, file paths, url's, shell commands, etc.

I guess I'm not a member of that demographic?

What a fine observer of the obvious you are, Trent.

Sorry, my sense of humor is on strike or something and a firm grasp of the obvious is all I have to work with this week. I'll recover.

Re: Terminology. Enlightenment makes a terminal of the future.

Now I had a nap over the issue, I think you may indeed fall within the demographic, as you know at least some of the features. Saying you should not use this, is like saying you should not use grep, just because you do not know regular expression. So, maybe you try it out, just keep in mind, that there are so many more features.

Re: Terminology. Enlightenment makes a terminal of the future.

Looks pretty awesome, nice to see people are trying to 'take' the terminal one step into the future.

I often use the terminal due to the speed and customazibility of your .bashrc.
How efficient is this resource wise? I'm not sure it could print out a directory containing thousands of files within a reasonable amount of time.

Would want my old terminal just in case my graphic drivers crash big time!

Well they say it can compete with urxvt in terms of speed and it did for the short time I tried it but I didn't have such large directories to stress it.

Re: Terminology. Enlightenment makes a terminal of the future.

It certainly looks interesting, but I would be much more impressed if it include features that actually boost productivity like split, keyboard synchronization across multiple tabs/splits etc..
well, I mean ... can we have a iTerm2 for Linux?

Re: Terminology. Enlightenment makes a terminal of the future.

I don't know about iterm2, but the features you speak of are present in konsole.
-edit
confirmed; and for the autocomplete feature, just take a look to kingbash in the forum or in the aur.

kravecm,

There's an AUR package for termkit, I haven't tried building it though.
