About Termux For PC

Download Termux PC for free at BrowserCam. Fredrik Fornwall published the Termux App for Android operating system mobile devices, but it is possible to download and install Termux for PC or Computer with operating systems such as Windows 7, 8, 8.1, 10 and Mac.

Ever wondered why people love Linux? It’s because of the coding capabilities and system customizations can be done at its best! But when you own an Android device and a Linux device, it’s difficult to keep tabs on both the devices as both run on different operating systems. But what if we say you can turn your Android device into a Linux system just with a help of an app? Yes, that’s possible with Termux! 

Termux is a wonderful app developed for Linux lovers so that they are always glued to their systems be it a Linux PC or an Android device. Now you might say that who would code on an Android device? Well, it’s not just the smartphone; you can install Termux on your tablets, Chromebooks that can be accessed with keyboards and a lot more devices. With that, you can easily code on your Android devices too. It’s not a big deal after all, isn’t it?!

Notable Features of Termux!

#1. This app provides a lot of packages which are pre-build in the app itself. So instead of creating a custom build package, ensure that you check the ones that are already available in Termux app itself. It can save a lot of time for you. 

#2. Even if you go wrong in some codes or when creating packages, Termux-exec will make sure that the redirected script paths work accurately. You would need a text editor or IDE to code perfectly using Termux on your Android devices. 

#3. From sharing texts from the terminal or other apps to resetting or hanging up the terminal, everything is possible right from this app itself. You need not switch to your Linux device to get these basic things done. 

Overall, it’s a good attempt by the developers of Termux to bring Linux based console using an Android emulator. If it had IDE to code, it could have been a useful feature for many coders. But still, if you’re still learning Linux and want to get your hands on touch-screen shortcuts of Linux, Termux is your way to go! Download it on your Android devices right away if you don’t get much time to code on your Linux systems.
