- An app for coders
Terminal IDE is code editor that supports several languages: Java, C, C++, HTML and Android SDK. It comes with some auto-complete features and all the needed sources to code in those languages from your mobile device. It uses the command line with many powerful open-source apps: apkbuilder, ssh, sshd, busybox, midnight commander and many more.
It comes with a custom ASCII on-screen soft keyboard as well as an extensive generic external hard keyboard key mapper. It's a nice terminal emulator in which you can log in via telnet and ssh and user your home screen and keyboard combo. No root permissions needed.
Code-monkeys now can still coding on-the-go.
It uses the command line, with many powerful and robust open-source applications, plus a custom ASCII on-screen 'soft' keyboard that works well (You must ENABLE it in your device's main Keyboard Settings).. and also has an extensive generic external 'hard' keyboard key mapper. This way CTRL / ALT / ESC etc.. should all be accessible.
GCC 4.4.0, make 3.82, ctags, javac, java, dx, proguard, aapt, apkbuilder, signer, ssh, sshd, telnetd, bash 4.2, busybox 1.19.2, vim 7.3, nano 2.2.6, midnight commander 4.8, htop 1.0, TMUX 1.5, links 2.7, rsync 3.0.8, git 1.7.8, BitchX 1.1 and a nice terminal emulator are all available.
The vim editor has been setup with c / java / HTML development in mind and is extremely powerful. Also vim has been setup by default in a humane way (arrow keys work, backspace..), so that starting on this long and glorious journey won't begin with a punch in the face.
With the addition of all the other apps provided, Terminal IDE becomes much MUCH more than an extremely powerful IDE. One could call it a complete 'Command Line OS'.
Best of all you can log in via telnet / ssh and use your home keyboard/screen combo!
AND the whole app runs WITHOUT needing ROOT permissions.
It's all available with normal user permissions..
Also the project is released under GPLv2
Constructive criticism always welcome. Useless abuse, not so much.
NB: This app CANNOT be installed onto the SDCard because you do not get 'Execute' permissions on that mount. It must run in this app's private memory on the device [Also much more secure]. You can of course still read / write to the SDCard and store your files / projects there. ALSO - once extracted it takes up about 150MB of your INTERNAL memory. You have been warned..
NB2: 'ENTER NOT WORKING' confusion on Terminal IDE keyboard.. Android expects a different key-code than the terminal(which expects ^M).
- Use CTRL+ENTER to send Android ENTER at any time.
- GO,NEXT,SEND & SEARCH all work when they appear as icons.
NB3: The Help/Tutorials, available in the app, can now be downloaded separately as a PDF from the Google code project. Thanx to Roy.
NB4: This app is ARM only.. No x86 support. Sorry - and yes, it's a big job to convert..
NB5: No UTF-8 support yet.. Just ASCII.
NB6: READ ALL THE IN-APP HELP! TWICE! BEFORE YOU EMAIL ME! Please..

Comments and ratings for Terminal IDE
The best app for developers. Great work. Needed something of this sort desperately. Thank you!
This was an excellent idea with terrible execution. There is not a single thing which actually works here. nano and Vim both act frustratingly strange with what appear to be random key presses that never actually happened making writing any code impossi
The work of these developers is really priceless, can't thank you enough... this is an art of its own kind, one the devs can put up on there walls proudly
Great app. Love it..
I love u....seriously man you made my android more usefull as it was earlier
Love this. It would be nice if the menu and tutorials would be accessed in the same way as the multiple terminals with the swipe gesture.
