NEW APP ALERT
In the midst of listening to weekly [Linux Unplugged podcas] and searching the catacombs of Github I overheard discussion of a new app to try out. S-TUI is a terminal UI for monitoring your computer.As a linux admin im always looking for ways to find or gather system information. This app allows you to not only gather that information in a cool and visual way, it also allows you to run a stress test on your pc to further test its performance.
Installation on Ubuntu
The latest stable version of s-tui is available via pip. To install pip on Ubuntu run: sudo apt-get install gcc python-dev python-pip Once pip is installed, install s-tui from pip: (sudo) pip install s-tui
A ppa is available (xenial,bionic)
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:amanusk/python-s-tui sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install python3-s-tui
