compiled for aarch64, original description:

ShellEx is the GUI shell executor for Sailfish OS.

Core features are:
-run, save, label, sort and edit commands.
-you can run the commands in Fingerterm, inside the app with output page.
-copy output

Additional features:
-write to process stdin inside the app (does not work for passwords in ssh, su etc.)
-change font size of output, wrap/unwrap output
-start / stop commands, or run detached

Future features are:
-In app script support: setup parameters, GUI for giving parameters, default parameters.
-Hopefully UI patch which integrates the app into the events view

Note that careless commands might lead to data loss. Be aware that you and only you will be responsible of how you use this app.

For running commands as root (requires developer mode), I suggest installing sudo from mer-tools repository and adding privileges individually for each command you need. I do not recommend using nopasswd: all. Using "devel-su -c" works fine when ran in Fingerterm.

Minor bug: Eternal spinning circle after starting a command on Volla phone, but it seems to be executed.

There is a little bug in this app: when i try "systemctl restart sailfish-fpd", it opens a keyboard with only numbers, but not the usual keyboard. This makes it impossible to enter my root password. Would you be so nice and fix that or does this bug come from the original app?

No, i just compiled it and that's it. The only app i changed was nemosyne, but i declared that in the description, because i wanted to be able to have pictures in flashcards for mathematical expressions
