An Android Command-Line-Interface Shell HyperTextMarkupLanguage Terminal-Emulator. Uses Automate's Web Dialog as HTML Term-Em to communicate with the ACLI Shell (MKSH, nowadays). Made to be as similar as possible to an ADB Interactive Shell in a terminal window.

It has a prompt that prints Exit Code (only if ≠ 0) and Working Directory. If WD contains a substring equal to {storage("primary")} (Home Directory), it will be shown as "~" (similar to Linux terminals). The web-dialog terminal-window also auto-detects ⚫Dark🌙(night) and ⚪Light☀️(day) modes and sets its theme accordingly.

If a user grants more privileges to Automate, they will be allowed to do more things (even if the flow doesn't request those privileges). For example, if the user grants storage access, Automate (and this terminal) will be allowed to read contents of user storage via Shell.

Each time text is inputted, a new Shell session starts, that's why the Shell doesn't "remember" previous stdins, except when used inside scripts and/or 1-liner multi-commands.

"sh" command can be used to run script files and exit interactive mode during the execution of the script.

Semicolon symbol (";" without quotes) can be used as a command delimiter to execute multiple commands in sequence in just 1 line (without running a script)

If a Linux Prompt prints "#", means SU. If it prints "$", means normal user. (This flow wasn't tested/debugged using root, thus is rootless)

Future changelog: Terminal-side support for "alias" command.
