primitivus - Salut à Toi's console interface
primitivus [ --profile=PROFILE | --help ]
Primitivus is Salut à Toi's console interface, based on Urwid. Primitivus is modal (vi-like), one can switch from one mode to another in the same way as in vi/vim: · From any mode, press [Esc] to switch to normal mode. · From normal mode, press : to switch to command mode. · From normal mode, press i to switch to insert mode — the one you use to write messages to your contacts. Primitivus can be handled either with the mouse, in a very intuitive way, or with the keyboard. The keyboard shortcuts are explained in the section KEYBOARD HANDLING.
