I want to reraise the old very much wanted feature/idea of having the terminal window inside Sublime Text. That would be amazing to have everything in one place like that! (Especially in windows where the terminal/cmd.exe looks awful
The last time I checked, no functionality was possible due to limited API. But now with Sublime Text 3, is it possible to create such a plugin? It's important that (ANSI) colors are allowed too in order to replace the terminal.
If not perhaps,jps, you could extend the API with the necessary functionailties? (or even better include it directly in ST3!)
I actually used SublimeREPL a while back, which is excellent for REPL.
However, if I remember correctly, it didn't work so good with other things like node.js and meteor, because you can't stop the process with hotkeys (e.g. ctrl+c). Also, ANSI colors is a big deal here if it's to be a terminal replacement.
Don't know about Sublime API or plugins, but know something about ConEmu It may act as part of any other window, this calls "Inside mode". So, if you want to run ConEmu as part of Sublime - you need only create (or use?) some "pane" in Sublime and run "ConEmu.exe /insidewnd xHWND". HWND is hex descriptor of this pane HWND. I believe, it is possible to create such plugin.
