    you could use Termux::API to get stats (battery percentage, notifications, calls, some other stuff) of your phone from your PC.

    this video gives good examples

    Cowsay is a vital program. I’ve never understood why it isn’t installed by default in every distro.

    Compile llama.cpp, download a small GGML LLM model and you will have a quite intelligent assiatant running into your phone.

      Would that actually be decent? Even 6b models feel way too rudimentary after experiencing 33+b models and/or chatgpt. I haven’t tried those really scaled down and optimized models, though!

        They’re decent for text completion purposes, e.g. generating some corpspeak for an email, or generating some “wikipedia”-like text. You have to know how to write good prompts, don’t try to treat it like ChatGPT.

        For example if i want to know about the history of Puerto Rico I would put:

        “The history of puerto rico starts in about 480BC when”

    Termux is awesome! I use it for a bunch of things:

    • sshing into servers and my home when I’m out and about
    • using croc to transfer files
    • making videos I’m going to send people smaller with ffmpeg
    • downloading stuff with yt-dlp
    • giving myself access to the sandbox + /sdcard from other computers by running an ssh server
    • scripting phone stuff (like taking photos) with the api
    • running weechat locally, which I can then connect to with weechat android
    • using vim
    • probably a bunch of other things I’m forgetting

          That’s pretty much where I’m at too, and I find it easier to get to the file(s) I want to send through the cli. No judgement to anyone who prefers the gui though!

      Does croc relay pass only metadata about the client addresses, or is the data itself sent via the relay?

        As far as I know the relay just NAT busts, after that it’s encrypted p2p.

      Using termux for SSH as well. Haven’t heard about croc before. Are there advantages over copying files with ssh (scp) for example?

        The main advantages for me are:

        1. You don’t need to swap ssh keys, which makes it great for setting up new systems I haven’t connected to everything else yet (or don’t plan to)
        2. It’s cross platform
        3. The devices don’t need to be on the same network (it NAT busts too)

    Termux yeah. I use it everyday. So here is a (long) list

    • Use ffmpeg to convert videos or even edit it(with current 6.x version, mediacoded hwaccel is availiable)

    • yt-dlp

    • Use vim and emacs, maybe code something

    • Integrate it with other plugin apps like Termux:API(lots of system apis), Termux:Boot, Termux:Float(floating terminal), Termux:Widget, even Termux:X11 For running gui apps

    • You can run gui apps with other X servers like XSDL

    • Compile and run programs that is not availiable for arm(Worst thing, but i still does it. Much hassle and error prone, but fine for smaller programs)

    • Use ssh to connect to other devices

    • Install x11-repo and thus install xfce and firefox desktop(for fun)

    • Install proot-distro and use distros like debian, arch, ubuntu, manjaro, void, fedora, etc. which is cli only by default but you can install any DE.(You can combine display server from XSDL)

    • Use git, clone a repo, make changes, use it or push commit, whatever you do with git

    • Use your normal standard linux commands to browse thru your filesystem and make changes

    • neofetch, cpufetch, rxfetch, htop, gotop, cmatrix and hollywood for lolz

    • tmux, byobu or gnu screen

    • Tar, gzip and all coreutils

    • cryptomining(DON’T do that)

    • Test your webpage locally (php -S localhost:port)

    Ahem I wasted a lot of time making this list i think i have to go now lol

        I found this from a search.

        I don’t usually use manual keys but uses password to connect to ssh servers. Like ssh -p port user@ip and it promts to trust it then you have to enter your password. I have barely set up ssh servers but have connected ssh servers many times

    I am thinking about setting up a local HTTP web server with something and HTTP proxy to share my VPN connection easily. But to be honest I am also kinda lazy. Ok, alot.
    Maybe NGINX for web server and Privoxy for the proxy server. Or tinyproxy. I don’t know to be honest. When I’ll have too much extra time at school I can look into that.

    Anyway, there’s also ffmpeg. Pretty useful.
    And since you can run GUI in it, noaa-apt for decoding APT imagery from the last NOAA satellites still broadcasting APT at 137MHz. (NOAA-15, 18 and 19. NOAA-15 currently has broken AVHRR scan motor, but it’s not the first time.)

          Ah, I see. Is this for devices that can connect to a proxy but can’t connect to a VPN?

          I suppose one could share their Wi-Fi connection using this too

            Also. I use it with school computers like that.
            But also to go around VPN device limit. For example, I use free Proton VPN which limits me to 1 connection at a time. And that 1 device can be the device running proxy server, and now I increased the limits.

    Definitely try running a full Linux distro with it, it’s pretty fun and a self-rewarding task, even if you don’t end up actually doing anything with it. But you may still find it useful in some ways, for instance, you could run a full fledged desktop Firefox with support for ALL addons, use it to inspect and debug web pages etc.

    And if you feel like it you could take it a step further and install Zink and Box86 to play Windows games.

      Just as a tip: you can run every Add-on on Firefox nightly. You can add your own add-on collection and select from that. You have to go into dev mode though. Yo do taht by tapping the Firefox logo in the about section like 5-10 times. You have to have a Firefox account though. Or you could use my fairly small add-on list:

      Username: 16700479 Name of the list: cookies

      If you mean the ascii text that is just figlet piped into lolcat

      figlet GrapheneOS | lolcat

      And the other is just cowsay piped into lolcat

      cowsay i did something | lolcat

      You can pipe pretty much any terminal output into lolcat (although some things don’t really play well with it)

    I ssh into my desktop and do a watch sensors while I’m gaming, sometimes. Then I can make sure temps are good without taking screen real estate with mangohud or similar.

    Try to use my apkverify tool.

    It may be broken or not work on some APKs, getting it running on Termux is kinda weird, but you could then use a better output of APKSigner to read signatures and verify APKs on first install.

    Apksigner on its own was pretty useless for me, thats why it uses a workaround. Apks are zips, so it renames the file, decompresses and reads some file where the signer is actually mentioned with Name and all. Then it deletes it.

    Iirc there was some bug with Termux and the unpack thing, because Android sucks I guess. On Linux it works fine.
