Build your own Command Line with ANSI escape codes
Everyone is used to programs printing out output in a terminal that scrolls as new text appears, but that's not all your can do: your program can color your text, move the cursor up, down, left or right, or clear portions of the screen if you are going to re-print them later. This is what lets programs like Git implement its dynamic progress indicators, and Vim or Bash implement their editors that let you modify already-displayed text without scrolling the terminal.

security - Can I disable interactive shell access while tunneling web traffic through SSH? - Server Fault

Eliminating delays on ESC in vim and zsh - John Hawthorn
While having a vim discussion on twitter with @_jaredn, I remembered that having a delay in entering normal mode after pressing ESC (switching to normal mode) really frustrates me. This delay exists because many keys (arrows keys, ALT) rely on it as an escape character. Here’s the setup I’ve used for a while for near instantaneous switch into normal mode.

How do I get Vim to recognize ESC key faster? - Stack Overflow
Q: I use Vim, almost exclusively in the console. When I exit insert mode by pressing <ESC>, there is a noticeable lag in Vim's recognizing the command. The lag is similar to the delay when I push the <leader> key, I assume to give me time to enter other characters in a mapping. Is there an option I can set to get Vim to recognize the escape key faster?

Why does vim incsearch pause when cancelling a search with the <ESC> key? - Stack Overflow
Q: In vim, if you set incsearch then it will scroll to the next match of your current search term without moving the cursor. I often use this to read a section of code without moving the cursor there, because I can then hit <ESC> and the screen will return back to wherever my cursor was when I started searching.

However, vim has a pause after you hit <ESC>, and before it scrolls back to the cursor. I find this pause very irritating. What is the purpose behind this pause, and/or is this pause configurable?

keyboard - Consequences of 'escape-time 0' tmux setting? - Super User
I find that when running (neo)vim inside tmux, the escape-key is delayed. This is fixed by putting:

set -sg escape-time 0

in my .tmux.conf. Presumably, this disables the possibility of using ESC as the "meta" key. Assuming that I always work with keyboards that have an Alt key to act as "meta", I'm wondering what potentially undesirable consequences that setting might entail.

TERM strings | Arabesque
All terminal emulators are not created equal. Certainly, not all of them are xterm(1), although many other terminal emulators do a decent but not comprehensive job of copying it. The value of the TERM environment variable is used by the system running the shell to determine what the terminal connecting to it can and cannot do, what control codes to send to the program to use those features, and how the shell should understand the input of certain key codes, such as the Home and End keys. These things in particular are common causes of frustration for new users who turn out to be using a forced TERM string.

Tutorial: How to Color Man Pages & How It Works | TuxArena
Except for the eye-candy, colors may help when it comes to clarity, although some prefer the default monochrome approach. At the start of this article there is the actual code which can be copied and pasted inside the ~/.bashrc file, and which can be modified depending on each person’s preferences. If you don’t care about what it does you can just insert it in ~/.bashrc, restart your terminal and start reading some man pages to see how it looks (e.g. man man). After this part I tried to explain how this code works and how to modify it in order to get new ‘themes’.

What is a terminal multiplexer? It lets you switch easily between several programs in one terminal, detach them (they keep running in the background) and reattach them to a different terminal. And do a lot more. See the manual.

Tomorrow Theme the precursor to Base16 Theme.
After having spent over five years using, tweaking and refining a personal editor theme I decided it was time to release "Tomorrow Theme" - a bright theme with pastel colours and sensible syntax highlighting.
A theme should not get in your way but should aid your programming with easily identifiable colours that add meaning and enhance legibility. This was the main focus when developing Tomorrow.
