I spend most of my time in the terminal. I heard something about TermKit, and I'm curious as to how I can install it on Ubuntu. So far, I haven't been able to find any good instructions on how to install it.
First, install the dependencies:
sudo apt-get install git libssl-dev
Now, download, build and install node, npm (a package manager for node) and TermKit itself:
trunk is a bit unstable so we check out a known-working version of node:
cd ~ mkdir TermKitProj cd TermKitProj git clone https://github.com/joyent/node.git cd node git reset --hard 1b8dd65d6e3b82b6863e ./configure make sudo make install cd .. git clone http://github.com/isaacs/npm.git cd npm sudo make install cd ..
git clone https://github.com/Floby/TermKit.git --recursive cd TermKit/ npm install
Okay, everything is installed. Now lets launch it!
You should see something like this:
18 Jun 20:12:45 - socket.io ready - accepting connections server listening at http://localhost:2222
And now navigate to http://localhost:2222 in Chrome/Chromium (Firefox won't work, webkit needed!) To launch it again, navigate to TermKitProj/TermKit and run "node Node/nodekit.js" again.
Thanks to this guide.
