I really wish there was such a thing as a dumb terminal that could handle UTF-8 and emoji. I really don't want to build one myself.


@roadriverrail By "dumb terminal", do you mean like a hardware device? Or just something like st?

@apetresc I mean the hardware device, ideally. Keyboard, screen, and serial line. I suppose I'd accept a computer with a native text mode that did this, though.
