Now… I know I’m a bit obsessed by this arguments but I was quite unhappy with ImVT. Having become aware of the work to reach a minimal stable state with ImVT I realized I don’t have enough time. I’d like to write a library that handles only issues terminal related (interpret signals, escape/control sequences, …) allowing you to avoid to use a GUI (Gnome VTE forces you to have a gui for your terminal emulator) and to work with a simplified interface to push input and read processed output in some friendly way (markup? XML/HTML?). I’d like to but… now I can’t (and I don’t know if I were able to!).
So the idea I’ve done this new plugin, less versatile but a little bit more robust and far far away easier to write! The final result is a kind of telnet via IM. If you’re unsatisfied with ImVT take a look to ImRA and please leave a feedback!
