I made an extension for the terminal.

Using Git and the bootstrap script
You can clone the repository wherever you want. (I like to keep it in
~/dotfiles as a symlink.) The bootstrapper script will pull in the latest version and copy the files to your home folder.
git clone https://github.com/CevinEichnau/dotfiles.git && cd dotfiles && source bootstrap.sh
cd into your local
dotfiles repository and then:
Alternatively, to update while avoiding the confirmation prompt:
set -- -f; source bootstrap.sh
Add custom commands without creating a new fork
~/.extra exists, it will be sourced along with the other files. You can use this to add a few custom commands without the need to fork this entire repository, or to add commands you dont want to commit to a public repository.
You could also use
~/.extra to override settings, functions and aliases from my dotfiles repository.
Use the Visor.terminal in
