Here is a short overview of the applications I have written about.
- Twyt is a command line Twitter client. It is a lot more sophisticated than my own simple three-line Twitter script that can only update the status.
- e3 is a very lightweight text mode editor that can emulate the keyboard shortcuts of several better known editors like Emacs and vi.
- wtf deciphers acronyms.
- Adventure is an old text mode adventure game - a classic early example of interactive fiction.
- Nethack is another golden oldie. It is even installed on some of the proprietary Unix systems at the University where I used to study.
- Alpine is a simple and easy to use email client. The article shows also how to configure it to for gmail.
- If you are looking for a text mode contact manager, take a look at abook.
- Midnight commander, a.k.a. mc is a text mode file manager.
- Burn your CDs and DVDs with cdw.
- Create postscript calendars on the command line with pcal.
- Text mode reminders can be handled by remind .
- Catdoc and antiword are useful for reading Microsoft office formats.
- What about reading pdf files in text mode? No problem!
- Htop is better than top.
- I use wget for downloads.
- One can even browse the net with some of the text mode web browsers.
- And finally, bc is a command line calculator.
