^ Sweeeeeet  :D, I am not near my Linux boxes for a while.  :'(
What are the  deps for standalone Deepin Terminal. Might use this with my MX15 work box. How resource hungry is it?

I would recommend terminator for that, but you probably know it already.

:o :o

So you  install a complete desktop environment to  get the behaviour of a window manager system?
Sounds very reasonable and lightweight.

No, I thing it's this way: He helps develop, test and integrate a very popular DE but his heart is actually lost at a lightweight and tiling WM. ;D

Which very popular DE are you talking about?

If you imply that Deepin is not yet very popular you are probably right and I'm talking about a non-exitent thing.

It is definatelh not a lightweight option. You can get most of the same functionality with urxvt+tmux combination and crapload of configuration for about 85mb lesss ram usage and few hundred mbs of dependencies. But what does that extra investment give you?
- no time spent on configuration
- no learning curve
- mouse menus
- clientside titlebar
- faster scrolling
- better mouse scrolling

Is this acceptable tradeoff? For deepin users it probably is, because they have hardware that can run deepin. So I think it is good terminal for deepin.

Well, originally my post was not really meant to be dead serious ;) Also note that it was posted on the Deepin-subboard and not as a general recommendation for a terminal emulator ;)
I do find it really awesome that when I need 2 or 3 shells open that I have this tiling functionality available inside such a polished DE - and, it really surprised me that the deepin people would have cared to include such a feature! ;D

Thank you for the information guys, much appreciated.   :D
Hmm, wonder why they didn't use Python 3 for such a new project.  ???

This is very interesting. It's like a more refined Terminator in some, if not many, ways.
