Seems to be irretrievably broken by the upgrade to OS X 10.10 :( Five stars for the effort, though currently it is zero stars for nonfunctionality. Hope this is not the end of its “good run”.

My WidgetTerm has "broken". All I see is the resize bar at the bottom of the widget, with the silver button on the left. There is no frame / window drawn for the widget, though when deleting the widget, the cross appears at an appropriate height above the resize bar. However, the widget doesn't respond - not text input, no response from clicking the silver button, nothing. I've tried re-installing but to no avail. Any ideas what could be wrong, or if there is a configuration file that is broken? This behavious is occurring across reboots as well. Cheers! Gary

Where is the command history saved to? With Terminal, it's saved in ~/.bash_history, but for the life of me I can't find where CocoaTechTerminal (and iTerm and Path Finder) saves its history. Other than this, it's a fine widget for quick command line tasks.

Doesn't like resizing vertically when my system is under load. Doesn't redraw properly. However, resizing horizontally, then vertically, then horizontally seems to work :-) I'd love to see this with "windowshade" style hiding. A bit like the dictionary/thesaurus widget. Highlight=copy and middle-mouse=paste might be hard to implement, but would probably be the most welcome of all features. You'd steal a march on Apple's own Terminal.app if you did that :-) Plus preferences to change font & point size, switch off cursor blinking, set terminal to a particular size, and change color (inc transparency) would be natty. White on black is fine for now. These preferences shouldn't necessarily come from the same place as Terminal.app - I might like a different background color and font here. I'm definitely going to be using this for quick shell stuff. Thanks!

My opinions: The bar should be at the top, not the bottom. The bar is too big; it's just dead space. The default terminal size is too small, and should be 80x24. Font/color prefs would be nice. Perhaps as a start it could read the default profile from iTerm? It's a good start, but it won't replace my terminal yet.

Excellent idea, great widget. Keep it up. One question though: Is there a way to change the font?

Excellent widget. Command line on the Dashboard, very useful. Sometimes quick tasks have to be done in the terminal, and the dashboard is convenient for such tasks. Shame about the Ctrl-D bug, but I'm sure it'll be fixed quickly. How about the ability to change background / font colours?
