Discussion on: Warp is the future of terminals

Tbh this (no OSS, sending everything, weird business model, osx first) sounds awful.

And it can to nothing than can't be done by other shells, no need for a terminal emulator to even do that...🀷

This is snarky, but I think only an osx user can fall for that kind of BS πŸ€¦β€β™‚οΈ

It definitely is not the future of terminal. Because we all can use this features for years now. That's not only hyperbole, it's just wrong.

Just use fish, fzf and tmux and be done with it. It also works on every other system if you remotelogin via ssh

It lowers the barrier of entry to terminal.

No one said this isn’t something any other terminal / plug-in could do.

Snarky is an understatement, never realized your choice of OS denotes things like deciding on software you want to use is good or bad, but your opinion is valid either way.

choice if OS denotes yadayada...

It kind of does. eg. if you are used to work with your hands bound behind your back by using an inferior OS, your might also find inferior software to be "the future of XY"

Next you will tell me only OS to use is the one you use and no other compare. As well as your keyboard, mouse, monitor, dev tools.

As a dev for almost 14 years and has written code on Linux boxes, windows boxes, MacOS.

At this point just toss me a keyboard and I’ll write you whatever you need. I don’t think any of them are inferior of each other. All of them are good or bad, in some scenarios... sure a linux box has advantages, in web dev they all are on level playings fields pretty much.

I personally believe that lower barrier of entry is the future of terminals, it’s why fig.io and warp exist in the space. People finally realize the pain point and we can solve it.

Sure I’d prefer the whole thing to be open sourced so I can look at the code and decide for myself but for now I’m willing to enjoy the experience and decide for myself if the risk reward ratio is worth it.

I'm actually still amazed that you see this as a painpoint where we need a new terminal EMULATOR, when there are tons of tools and shells which have this functionality already and at the same time try to imply I should look outside the box.

Dude, you simply didn't know how to use your shell and wrote an hyperbole article about the future, which in fact other people are living for years now. I just pointed it out. To yourself a favour and Google (or YouTube) fish, fzf, tmux, nvim, etc

I have been developing longer and on more systems than you, but I don't see why that should matter. I just didn't want to drink your kool.aid

You should stop assuming.

I use a shell every day at my job, which again you assume I have no knowledge of. I don't need to google any of them, because again, I have used them in the past.

This article is a let's look at article, no where in it am I telling you to completely remove your working workflows, nor telling you that fish, zsh vanilla or any other is useless compare to an emulator.

The title is fairly clickbaity, which I have no problem with.

Then you should stop feeling butthurt about people taking you at your word and pointing out that's just hyperbole. A needless article and waste of time to read
