neercs is a work-in-progress libcaca project.

Like GNU screen, it allows you to detach a session from a terminal, but provides unique features:

  • Grabbing a process that you forgot to start inside neercs
  • Great screensaver
  • Real time thumbnails of your shells
  • Special effects when closing a window
  • Various window layouts...

Development happens in a centralised Subversion repository:

There is also a Git repository that mirrors the central one:
