If I create a linux installer gui(TUI) written in bash for tiny core linux!
Can you add this to the Core linux distribution!?
I will decide what to do based on the answer to this question.

Text-based user interface >> https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Text-based_user_interface

Learning linux was a different experience for me.
I found what I was looking for in the core configuration.
I have a project in mind to benefit everyone.

---

current installers
it only brings to the fore where to install.
desktop interface> window manager selection
on video card> driver preference
on file manager preferences
cannot create a guide guidance.
far from the expectation of new users.

tc-install.sh is already a shell-script installer?
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

Since the loading menu will be created in a narrow area of 24x80

You need to create a drop-down option with 2 options.

[[1 # combo box]]>> ((options)) >> (option)>> (2 # combo box] >> ((preferences)) >> (preference)

How can I make this menu system!? bash : shell scripts menu !???

I can even use a simpler and ready menu system, but the point where people ask for help is;
where they don't know where the problem is.

In this respect, ensuring that upload settings are reported on a single page for both a professional and a beginner.
will provide great convenience for.



now the golden question of the day;

How can I make this menu system!? bash : shell scripts menu !???

I'm not a programmer
I think some menus will be easier to use in an amateur sense.
Can you help with this ?!

programming for the public; (This is a relay race.)

In terms of drivers, a very close alternative to the main idea: https://github.com/jorgeluiscarrillo/arch-setup

It is easy for new users to work with the graphical interface.
It is difficult to write commands that he does not know by heart.

Installation guide interface, providing the best minimalist installation experience

https://github.com/MatMoul/archfi

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f5MewjcSjDA&list=PLytHgIKLV1caHlCrcTSkm5OF2WSVI1_Sq

Installing an operating system using only the arrow keys
we are not just talking about where (which HDD) to install.

even what apps to install
You can do it simply by using the arrow keys: D

For someone new to experience linux
Each key on the keyboard means 256 possibilities.
Pressing just one letter means eliminating 256 possibilities.
Typing something with 5 letters 256 ^ 5
Typing something with 10 letters 256 ^ 10

* debian installer you might think it looks like
but it does not offer such fine and precise application loading options.

  • hi there
Hello F,

Tincyore's primary design is the "nomadic cloud" operation mode.

It is alive in RAM of computer. 
It always starts in a fresh clean condition.
It is best to run Tinycore in that way it was designed to do.

So, there is also the small "extra" job of always having Tinycore "recover" your installed apps upon power downs and reboots..........and having tinycore remember it's operating system's  + apps state. upon power off's and restarts  (persistence)

backup ........persistence.   

The Tinycore graphical desktop "should" tell any new user how to do the above.
Perhaps 3 simple steps.  An Einstien  bubble icon   "make this computer remember"

Or i even had a way of "telling" the Repo  the current "snapshot state" of tinycore.....saved there as snapshot.

......then upon a fresh (fire and forget) reboot......Still the snapshot re-appears for you in the repo....click it....and tinycore takes that snapshot state up again... (backup complete blanket backup)

thx

Installation guide interface, providing the best minimalist installation experience

I am a non-native English speaker,
If google translate did not translate so well, I wouldn't have learned anything here. (first of all; thanks google translate :)

Let me tell you a story :) Let me tell you my own story,: D
In 1998 I bought my first personal computer.
It was an operating system that was easy to install, easily rebuilt when it crashed.
and I used this operating system easily. or because it is easy to use; I had to use

At the time of linux, in terms of popular culture, all computer magazines had superficial information,
but there were no fully explanatory and guiding source information magazines on linux.

I've had the experience of switching to linuxe maybe 20 times in the past 20 years.
I could not find what I was looking for in any of them. Until I find the TCL on it.
TCL has taught me a lot. but sometimes it is not easy to teach what you learn.

I do not know which definition is correct; I have grasped the bash shell script gui tui menu event roughly in the last 48 hours.

frankly i think now; One thing that makes things so easy, especially for 99% of the world whose native language is not English, is something that makes it so easy to easily create systems. (by pressing the arrow keys with instructions such as right, left, up, down, yes, no; It is very easy to create a system with name familiarity)

Looking at the symbols and reading them roughly takes some familiarity.
but believe it or not, typing commands that are not your native language
It's like torture for cultures and geographies with different native languages!

I am not only evaluating the event in terms of my local language or geographical culture.
Already a good road map always brings you to your destination with signs of road and direction.

symbols that are universal are like traffic signs :) they are like the silent common language of the whole world :) In this respect, we need to pay more attention to this road map. the world thinks about the same things as you, but we cannot use the same language formally.

from this point ; bash shell script gui tui menu system is like a universal guide. :)

By the way, I'm using TCL and I want this feature to come to TCL.
