#!/bin/bash
# A simple Linux-only pure-shell showterm client for those without Ruby.
#
# Mac users (and Linux users with Ruby installed) should use the ruby client:
# (sudo) gem install showterm
#
# Dependencies (please let me know if you don't have them all already)
# mktemp (coreutils)
# script (util-linux)
# tput (ncurses)
# bash
# curl
#
# To install. Just copy this file to your computer, and chmod +x showterm.
#
# curl showterm.io/showterm > ~/bin/showterm
# chmod +x ~/bin/showterm
#
# Otherwise you can run this file without installing:
#
# bash <(curl record.showterm.io)

Apparently this is only necessary so far for Linux. macOS and probably Ubuntu still have an older curl that is still compatible with the older version.
