Synopsis

termy-ssh [ssh-options] [user@]host
termy-sudo [su-options]
termy-su [user]

Description

termy-ssh is a wrapper around termy-connect(1) for running termy-server(1) on a remote host using an instance of ssh(1). The ssh-options, user, and host are passed to ssh, along with -q to disable printing of diagnostic messages, and -T to disable pseudoterminal allocation. The single command termy-server is requested to be run on the remote host.

Important: Make sure that termy-server(1) is installed on the remote system and present on the remote user's PATH. The shell run by ssh(1) in single command mode is neither a login shell nor interactive, meaning that the remote user's .profile and .bash_profile will not be sourced. Furthermore, PATH customizations applied in the remote user's .bashrc must be made before any test for interactivity that causes the script to exit.

Important: Ensure that ssh-options does not contain any switches such as -v that interfere with the -q or -T switches added by termy-ssh. Some situations might require direct use of termy-connect(1) or a more complex wrapper script.

termy-sudo is a wrapper around termy-connect(1) for running termy-server(1) as a different user using sudo(8). The sudo-options are passed to sudo, along with -i to start a login session, and -S to remove the need for a pseudoterminal. The command termy-server is requested to be run as the new user.

termy-su is a wrapper around termy-connect(1) for running termy-server(1) as a different user using su(1). The optional user argument is passed to su. The command termy-server is requested to be run as the new user.
