tmate is a tool to instantly share your terminal. Learn more on http://tmate.io/.
Due to popular demand, the server side is finally open source!
No more trust issues :)
Host your own tmate server
The sources are located at https://github.com/nviennot/tmate-slave.
You need a Linux distribution as tmate utilizes linux specific features.
Here is how you can run your own tmate server.
git clone https://github.com/nviennot/tmate-slave.git && cd tmate-slave ./create_keys.sh # This will generate SSH keys, remember the keys fingerprints. vim tmate.h # Edit TMATE_DOMAIN with yours. ./autogen.sh && ./configure && make ./tmate-slave
The tmate sources are released under the MIT license, so feel free to do
whatever you want with it.
Feel free to to integrate tmate with your service, something like Showterm, Airpair.com, MadEye, or Floobits.
I would really like a platform where people can share their terminal publicly when working on open source projects. I’d like to see experts working on their projects to learn new workflows. And perhaps jump in to pair with a stanger :)
