Thone - a Terminal Phone
Thone is a terminal phone written in Bash3 and python for freesmartphonebased devices.
More precise, thone is a suite of bash scripts to operate your daily phone: sms, call, etc. It does not yet handle dbus signals, such as incoming calls, incoming messages or even outgoing calls; these should still be handled by your default software.
I'm maintaining it here: http://code.google.com/p/thone
- a linux based phone like openmoko
- running on FSO and with the python/dbus library
- with bash3 installed
Running 'thone' starts a new (bash) shell and initializes Thone. In that shell, you have additional commands like
> call +310652252252 > ppl add +31065225222 frank > sms @frank answer your damn phone, i know youre there > toggle sleep on
.. and autocompletion is your friend.
I'm using it on my Openmoko on SHR-U. It comes with a launcher icon for Enlightenment, which spawns Vala-terminal with 'thone jail' in it - so for example "sms read" looks like this:
