Name of the software: tdrop
Project/product Homepage: https://github.com/noctuid/tdrop
Why we should include this into the repository, i.e. what does it do that the alternatives do not?
It is a convenient way to make pretty much anything like a dropdown terminal. Example usage:
- Make your favorite non-dropdown terminal or any graphical application into a dropdown application or really, even better, make it spawn in an exact position on the screen every time.
- I'll use it for my calculator of choice 'speedcrunch' on a hotkey and adventures on my spare laptop on bspwm and sxhkd.
For further reasons on why tdrop is such a fantastic software see the first section on the github page "Advantages Over Other Dropdown Terminals" - a straight no nonsense list on supported features, clear and consice. Thought it was redundant to copy and paste it into this here post.
The github is really well filled with documentation on why, how and usage.
Is it open source?: Yes under BSD 2-Clause "Simplified" License: https://github.com/noctuid/tdrop/blob/master/LICENSE
If it is open source, please provide a link to the most up to date, versioned source tarball/zipfile. master.zip links will not be accepted.: https://github.com/noctuid/tdrop/releases - I asume a direct link to tarball/master.zip is not accepted but the release page is acceptable? Otherwise I'm not sure what to provide.
If there are no upstream releases but the inclusion policy is otherwise met, please provide a link to the source repository (i.e. GitHub): That's where it lives.
