"WordGrinder is a simple, Unicode-aware word processor that runs in a terminal. It supports basic paragraph styles, character styles, just enough screen markup to be useful, and is driven via an easy to use menu interface. "

Ok well I was bored and wanted to see something I haven't seen before. A terminal word processor, well i guess it would be ok for people who have one-bone puppy linux, or something, I even made a menu listing and used the "Grub worm" for the icon lol
Anyways enjoy and if anybody actually like this program please send a line or 2.
thanks
ttuuxxx

to start it type wordgrinder2 in a terminal or use menu/document/wordgrinder

alt+downArrow to get the menu

This is great fun, many thanks for the pet. Too bad a use can't increase font size (tough to read on an eee) or at least go with a bold font to increase readability.

But it's a hoot to play with.

Hi Jake I coded in some a larger Font for you, its the second package Smile
or use this link
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?mode=attach&id=16459

Ps with the code I added in located at /usr/bin/wordgrinder2 you can right click on it and open it as text, if find it too large and change
-font 10x20 to
-font 9x15 <--- smaller

ttuuxxx

Ps updated both packages so they they work on puppy 4.2 with the reversed rxvt colours.

Wow, that was fast. Much obliged again--it's FAR more readable on the eee. I'm trying to think of what use I can put this app to.

Thanks,
Jake

You da man here. I don't know how difficult to re-position, but it is a little odd that the cursor places itself in the screen's middle, rather than the top (that may be a programer's favorite position, I wouldn't know--or else I'm doing something completely asinine upon start-up).

edit: on further thought, since there's no drop-down menu (the screen becomes the menu), maybe that's where the cursor must begin.

Ok here's a newer version that supports new text formats,lol
anyways install the pet, then install sakura, open sakura and right click on the desktop, set you font size, color etc. This will work with any command line application, Sakura is a great terminal, you can also change the font while running wordgrinder.

To Start:
Open Sakura and Just type wordgrinder and hit enter and it will start.
now right click on the screen and you'll have lots of sakura options Smile

This is way-cool; I've never heard of Sakura before. I'm running wordgrinder on black background/white text/Arial bold. Looks better on the screen than OOO 3.0 or my Wine/MS Word 97 Smile

Nice that Sakura remembers your previous font choice. I may never use regular console again.

PostPosted: Tue 24 Mar 2009, 16:59    Post subject: evilvte or lxterminal?  

Sakura looks interesting and I'll give it a try sometime, though there are other ways of doing such magnification, even in the default Puppy terminals (I did some coding in the past to do that but I'll have to look that out). According to the info below, however, Sakura itself is (or was?) not as lightweight, in terms of process usage, as some terminal offerings.

The Debian forum thread at http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=467375 suggests that evilvte or lxterminal may also be worth looking at [extract follows]:

"I didn't upload it because the current version isn't good enough. It
takes more memory than other vte-based terminals because it doesn't
share a single process for multiple terminals.
. . .
Good work. I am still interested to see a really resource saving
terminal in Debian. I didn't upload sakura into debian becaure it's
useless if it's not really saving the resources.

Please have a look there is a fork called evilvte in debian which save
more resources. And another VTE-based terminal callled lxterminal saves
more"

Might also be worth checking out http://lxde.org/ which is a lightweight desktop (uses Openbox window manager) from which lxterminal apparently comes. Parts/most of LXDE are used by Slitaz and TinyMe. See also the related threads:
