Screenshot of Termux running the script in this tutorial People sometimes store sensitive information within Termux, like SSH Keys or PGP Keys. Within Android, this is fairly secure. No other app can access the Termux storage without explicit user consent. But our phones aren't secure devices for most people. Most people have a really short pin or password (or even none at all). So if our devices get stolen or seized, this data can easily be extracted. This short tutorial will show you a way to encrypt the whole Termux filesystem, so this data cannot be extracted once the phone has turned off or the filesystem is unmounted and closed again.

I compiled cava for Termux. It looks so good. This is also my first ever attempt at creating a Cinemagraph like this, so I'd appreciate some feedback.

Screenshot Just like with weechat you can now receive Android notifications on Termux when you receive a message in Profanity. I wrote a small plugin to achive exactly that. You can download it from GitHub and install it with /plugins install ./profanity-termux-notification/termuxnotify.py.

I've been using Termux over SSH for quite a while now. I've always done so over WiFi. This works reasonably well at home, where I control the IP Addresses. In other networks it was more annoying, because I always had to run ifconfig first, to get my IP. But the big annoyances start when you want to use it in a place that has no WiFi network available. Previously, I used an Android tablet and a keyboard. With this I set up a WiFi direct connection between my phone. It's wonky and sometimes requires to restart both devices before working again, but it works.

I figured out that you can pass variables from Termux to a Tasker task. This example sets Android's volume to a value specified in Termux.

Screenshot I managed to build a bridge between Termux and Minimalistic Text using Tasker. I use it to display the last 20 lines of the #termux irc channel as you can see in the picture. I've done it without having Tasker check a file every two minutes. The Task is directly called from the script.
