Larger, more functional version of solderpunk's gemini-demo-1, which was a Gemini client in <=100 LOC in Python 3.
Mine is already 50% larger.
Why the fork?
I really enjoyed solderpunk's work. Quick, clean, and tiny.
I just wanted to try my luck at getting a more fleshed-out app going.
I've never done FOSS contributions before today. Consider this repo my beginning!
I'm literally developing this entirely on an iPad Pro for kicks and giggles, using:
- Working Copy
I have no idea how long it'll last, if it even will at all.
This fork has all of gemini-demo-1's functionality:
- Has a minimal interactive interface for "Gemini maps"
- Will print plain text in any encoding if it is properly declared in the server's response header
- Will handle binary files using programs specified in
/etc/mailcap(so you can, e.g. view images)
- Will follow redirects
- Will report errors
- Does NOT DO ANY validation of TLS certificates
IN addition to:
- Has session-persistent history that you can repeatedly maneuver through
- Descriptive error texts
- More keyboard commands and CLI-accessible help text.
Run the script and you'll get a prompt. Type a Gemini URL (the scheme
is implied, so simply entering e.g.
gemini.conman.org will work) to
visit a Gemini location.
If a Gemini menu is visited, you'll see numeric indices for links, ala VF-1 or AV-98. Type a number to visit that link.
Press h to see a printout of your history, b to go back a page, and f to go forward a page.
Type ? to see a brief help text inside the client.
Press q to quit.
