So the challenge for #BDLL this week is to either try Fedora 29 or go 100% command line: no GUI. 733t h4xx0r that I am, of course I have to go with the latter. Starting tomorrow, I will boot straight into a TTY. No games, no browser, no GUI file manager, etc. I'll be using #ranger, elinks/lynx/w3m (not sure which yet), #tmux, and all the TTYs to replace #i3 workspaces.
I'll try to keep you guys updated on how it goes! Don't expect any screenshots 😂
@amolith Look at DVTM.
@ajroach42 Oh now that is cool. Thank you for the recommendation! I'm planning to test it out tonight!
@regines I'll be in a TTY so no GUIs, including qutebrowser, will work. I do use it along with FF as my daily browser though
Emacs is a great GUI-substitute. It has so many great features (email, rss feeds reading, terminal, dired mode for file managing, and more) that you won't miss the GUI.
Also, fbdev helps a lot with viewing images and video.
Search for programs that can write directly to the framebuffer. Like fbgs and fbi.
I really like lynx. (modern fork of links)
It's surprisingly easy to live in the tty.
