Scroll

scroll - Looked at this util a while back but paid it no mind. Since st 0.8.3 it has been able to support scrollback “natively” through this program and overall it’s quite good.

Kai has a good video on it which is what made me want to give it a go.

There are some minor caveats but not deal breakers for me, I think I’ll continue to use it.

That’s great. The lack of scrollback has been the main reason I haven’t used st.

It’s pretty simple to set up, enable the mouse binds in scroll’s config.h and make install then set the scroll variable in st’s config.h to “scroll” and rebuild.

I usually pipe things to less if I need scrollback.

Awesome thanks. Yeah I usually use less as well for situations like that, especially on the console.
