Did you ever wish you could monetize your terminal? We didn't. But now you can!

What it does

Sidebar and popups ads for your terminal! You won't believe what happens next!

How we built it

TMux, the terminal multiplexer, can be scripted to automatically set up terminal layouts. Command line ad scripts provide the ads themselves.

Challenges we ran into

Making things work across Windows, Linux, and OS X: all of which were represented on the team.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

Ads... in the terminal. Unlock the full description for $338.99.

What we learned

Lots about TMux, curses, and interactive console applications. The pain of cross-platform programming.

What's next for ADWEAR

The end goal is to be acquired by Google Adwords and have ADWEAR become part of the advertising portfolio.
