That's cool! I wanted to create exact the same thing. Now I can just use yours and replace your name. :D

Haha, feel free to do that 👀. I might add a command that will generate a similar website with custom name, theme, font etc...

One feature suggestion -- perhaps complete the command with tab (like when I type whoa {tab} it completes to whom

Also, the jackass in me tried sudo. There's an Easter egg waiting for you to code with that somehow

(finishing my MBA by the end of next month and starting a new job next week. But if I have the time (which is a big iff), I'll make a PR)

@doctorew check out the latest release, I added the tab completions and... an easter egg... ;)

YO!!!! Are you me from the past?? LOL

I got a good (not so good) talking to when we redid the video site back in 2009 or 2010 and I inserted the Family Guy version of this when someone enters the Konami code.

Looking back, I have no idea how I kept that job with the shiz I pulled off in my formative years 😂😂 (yes I know that’s an old person’s emoji)

Oh yeah about that tab completions, I'm currently working on that. As well as arrows to browse the history. But I mean, I'm worried I'm going to reinvent bash 😅

Take it from an old geezer like me -- no such thing as "reinventing" when you see it as deeply learning why and how something works ;-)

Excelsior!

Wooow, looks really cool and original :D One remark from my side, maybe it will be better to get back focus on input when user click somewhere on the page? Now you need to click exactly in the line where input is.

Love it! Reminds me of the time we made the Adult Swim site look like a broken server /Apache directory. Everybody thought we got hacked -- even the server devs (who knew we were on Nginx and could see there was ads on the page💀💀)

That's cool ! it will be good if you add some json file wich contains the whole informations like email our about then import it inside the project , so anyone can change only that file to his own informations then run build command

Very nice site, but it's not responsive on mobile

Collapse
m4tt72 profile image
Yassine Fathi Author

It's quite tricky to make it responsive, especially with ascii art stuff. I tried reducing the font-size, but ended up being too small, so what I did instead is set a minimum size on mobile viewport. Not really the best solution, but it's a terminal, it should only be viewed on desktop, right?

Oh good idea, I might add text based games to it. Or when it's open-sourced, someone else will ;)

Amazing site dude. im trying to do something similar at the min with Laravel using the TALL stack, may need to pick your brain on how you have achieved some stuff lol.

I will publish another post when it gets open-sourced, and you can check out the code and see how it works. Most of the challenges that I faced are UI.

I also build a bin system close to how unix works. Just export a function in a forlder with args and return a string, and it will be automatically picked up by the shell I created and added to the help command.
