Getting Started

1. Add this to your package's pubspec.yaml file:

  xterm: ^3.2.6

2. Create the terminal:

import 'package:xterm/xterm.dart';
terminal = Terminal();

Listen to user interaction with the terminal by simply adding a onOutput callback:

terminal = Terminal();

terminal.onOutput = (output) {
  print('output: $output');

3. Create the view, attach the terminal to the view:

import 'package:xterm/flutter.dart';
child: TerminalView(terminal),

4. Write something to the terminal:

terminal.write('Hello, world!');
