I have a raspberry pi zero w that I finally managed to get ssh working after a weekish of flaffing about (spaced out over a monthish) because I couldn’t figure out why wifi wasn’t working on it. I have it updated, and right now it’s living in an old glasses casemerrily puttering away on my network doing little to nothing. This thread is twofold.
With the pi as is, sitting on my network with just the tiny amount of storage it has on crd what can I do with it through SSH that would be useful? This part would potentially be helpful to those that have any old hardware that they can afford to leave somewhere running their flavor of linux on.
I have a simi sorta goal if I can get help with the fiddly soldoring bits to make a pocket terminal, mostly aimed at writing, but possibly for a few other things depending on how comfortable i get with command line.
so on to the questions!
Are there any ‘writer centric’ text editors for command line? Failing that any way to make Nano a little more friendly to long period writing?
Any way to take text files and post those as blog entries?
Non-obtuse/easy to use mail clients?
Any chance at a CLI boingboing board program?
Is there a way regardless of what the terminal is doing, to have a line of screen space reserved for battery indicator, current time/other infobits that’d be nice at a glance?
Any way I can easily alt-tab between terminal windows? A related question is if that is possible how do i close out of a terminal when i’m no longer needing it to conserve on memory used and cpu cycles?
Any good command-line music players?
IM Applications (steam, AIM, Google, etc? I know bitlbee is a thing and i used that off of my DS since there was a homebrew irc client with a not infuriating UI. However are there other alternatives? I… how hard is Finch to use?
Clamshell or slide-out? As in do I use a clamshell DiW ‘let’s get an xbox chatpad connected to a pi and an adafrit tft’ or do I go with N-O-D-E’s modded iphone keyboard case?
