ZShaolin GNU / Linux terminal


ZShaolin installs a powerful console terminal on your Android device. It comes with a fully featured and well usable shell (colors, completion etc.), a large software keyboard and several scripting possibilities to edit and convert batches of photos, images, audio and video in different formats, transfer files and admin remote machines.

☯☯☯☯☯☯ Features

No root required! ZShaolin saves you time and effort to be all set on Android with a PRO terminal, no Internet connection required and completely off the cloud.

Includes:

☞ Vim (fully featured) to edit texts with syntax highlight and more
☞ Emacs console the lisp extensible editor, fully featured
☞ RSync to transfer large files over the Internet
☞ OpenSSH client and daemon to connect remote machines
☞ Tmux console terminal screen manager and multiplexer
☞ Mongoose shares files on LAN over HTTP and WebDAV
☞ FFMpeg to convert, decode and encode audio and video files
☞ ImageMagick to convert and manipulate all image formats
☞ dcraw and jhead to edit raw photo formats and metadata
☞ Sox and OggZ to manipulate and convert audio files
☞ GnuPG and Steghide to hide and protect secret files
☞ HTop, NCdu and other tools to understand what's going on
☞ Awk, Sed, Curl and GNU tools for shell scripts
☞ Manpages and even Games, how can we live without them? ;^)

As you can imagine ZShaolin is there to make an hacker's life easier when using Android, while offering a friendly learning environment for shell scripting.

+ experimental packages:

☞ Git versioning system (limited to local functions)
☞ Lynx a textual web browser
☞ Midnight Commander file manager for console


☯☯☯☯☯☯ Documentation

ZShaolin comes complete with all manual pages of included programs (just use man!)

There is plenty of documentation freely available on the Internet in English and other languages on how to use a terminal console, here below we suggest some introductory reading:

☞ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Z_shell Information about the Z-shell
☞ http://en.flossmanuals.net/command-line Introduction to the command-line
☞ http://zshwiki.org ZSh user's wiki
☞ http://grml.org/zsh/grml-zsh-refcard.pdf ZSh configuration reference card
☞ http://www.imagemagick.org/script image manipulation
☞ http://sox.sourceforge.net/Docs/Documentation audio manipulation
☞ http://ffmpeg.org/ffmpeg.html video manipulation

☯☯☯☯☯☯ Remote Shell (NEW!)

To log-in using another computer on the local network via SSH run 'z-ssh' and follow the instructions.

ZShaolin will generate keys and launch an ssh daemon.

☯☯☯☯☯☯ Known Bugs

☞ SWIFT keyboard not supported.
☞ UTF-8 extended characters are not supported (yet).
☞ Only ARM devices supported, no Intel (yet).
☞ Not really a bug, but you need approx 240MB free! be sure there is enough space in FLASH (not sdcard)

We are actively developing ZShaolin and we welcome your bug reports: please report your problems on https://github.com/dyne/ZShaolin/issues and not in the market comments! We do our best to help and improve the software, but you need to make sure your hardware is in a good state and test twice if you can reproduce the bug. And rember this is software for developers and sysadmins: people who read the manuals and love to care about details! ;^)

Very good Very good and usable application. Keyboard is good too, only swapped @ and " keys in full landscape mode are a little bit annoying. However working ctrl+c, ctrl+d etc. are big plus.

Great! Has everything I need and takes a lot less space than having a full Debian chroot on my tablet.

Awesome set of utilities The only feature I would like is a small package manager (not for installing other tools, but for installing only the tools from this app that I want). Really, I only want/need Lua, Zsh, vim and a couple others. No need for emacs, etc.
