DO Ideas 2

Please implement a more usable cloud terminal

Many cloud IDEs as well as online code schools have highly functional browser-based terminals. I believe many use Xterm.js.

* Cloud9
* JupyterLab
* Eclipse Che/Orioin
* codeschoo.com
* codeacademy.com
* RStudio Server

The current console has numerous problems. You cannot cut and paste. The pipe symbol does not work.

    Copy/Paste still not working for me and please add the possibility to scroll in the console to see more than a few lines. When I try to show help on a command (-h or -help) I can only see the last few lines and now way to show the first lines...

    Hey there,
    I'm a product manager here at DO and I'm sorry to hear of the problems you ran into with the cloud terminal.
    Updating the terminal is something that is on our roadmap, you can expect to see improvements coming soon. Also, we just released the ability to paste into the terminal a few days ago, an official announcement will follow in a few days. I hope that helps a bit with some of the issues you are running into.
    All the best,
    Keith
