[edit] Bash - phone

An openmoko distribution which uses FSO. The interface is just a shell with on top of it a transparent keyboard (something like the fatfingershell). You can dail like this:

       pieterc@myphone$ dail +3248...... <RET>

or a contact:

       pieterc@myphone$ dail hom<tab> <RET> # = pieterc phone home

dail should be a python/bash/... script using the FSO api. other easy to use commands I can think of:

  • addcontact contact #number# -group "friends"
  • whereami (returns gsm locations and searches for cityname close to

that)

  • sendtext "come home for dinner" son1 # sends sms to son1 (again with

autocompletion)

  • wakemeup 7:30
  • tail /var/mail #to read last text-messages

bash-commands or commands you're used to: ls,cd,grep,awk,tail, ps, date, ...

and some ported apps:

  • nethack (yes, the game)
  • links/lynx,
  • emacs (with erc)
  • fortune (I like fortune a lot.)
  • ...

I think it's extremely easy and fun to develop this idea. It would make a perfect unix-lover-phone. We could hack on gnu bash to accomplish the auto completion for contacts and other stuff.
