Also for the arrow/cursor keys, maybe consider a kit with h j k l instead of left/right/etc for the vim reference

You sir are correct, good idea.

Love this idea, at the very least, some stylised hjkl keys as part of a novelty kit would be awesome

I believe this would look real good in KAM Glossy. At least you should try some renders to see how it goes :)

I think they're all okay, just the colon seems superfluous. But hey, the symbol seems to have grown on you and you're the creator, so it's fully your call.  :)

So after some testing the clear winners are:

[~]/>execute
and
[~/]>execute

If I'm understanding correctly the 2nd option should be more accurate. Cos you're taking away the hostname and user for space reasons, but you're working in some unspecified directory below the home directory and then the prompt. Whereas in the first one the / is part of the prompt and doesn't really do anything?

These sadly don't fit on anything smaller than 1.5u but it's workable.

You are definitely getting there... the second one looks good to me [~/]>execute

The ~ character represents the "/home" folder in many many Linux distros, and that is usually the default when you open a command terminal and is where all your personal stuff is stored.  As geewiz said, most users customize the prompt in some way so there is no hard and fast rule, so you could use #, $, :, > as the last character before the word in the legend.  For instance my prompt is crazy cause I use astronaut.  I don't recall ever seeing the '>' char in a prompt but as I said if you think it looks good that matters too.

Here is what a Debian and Ubuntu (super common distro) prompt default looks like these days for instance:

username@debian:~$

with either a blinking _, solid rectangle, or | representing the cursor position.  You can include that or not up to your taste.

this format is super common nowadays.  If you google terminal prompt you may get inspired as well.  As said earlier in the thread lean more towards unix / linux look and keep away from the matrix hacker look.  There are plenty of "futuristic matrix vaporwave hacker dude" looking sets as is.  Keep up the great work.

Windows command prompt, power shell, almost every REPL for scripting languages (python, nodejs), prompts for various clients to server applications (mysql, for instance). All by default of course, you can change your prompt. I would say > is a pretty broad and agnostic choice so could be good, I'm personally partial to $ but if it were my call I think I'd still choose >. Honestly IMO everything but the last char is too busy and I actually think going with just:
Code: [Select]
> execute_

would look good and convey the idea that it's a command being executed at a prompt or if one wants to go more *nix-y then:

 
Code: [Select]
$ execute_

Is it going to be ABS KAM (a la KAM Starry Night) or PBT KAM (a la KAM Wraith)?

WOAH I didn't realise this had gone to page 2! I won't reply individually but I will say that I'm still reading everything. The set is starting to take really great shape, kits are done, promo and renders in the works and gearing up to IC once all that is done and I get some Pantone chips. Things have progressed quite a lot from some of these initial renders but you'll just have to wait until the IC to see the results ;)

I would love to get a set of those! As and linux users for years I love it!

Personally, I prefer the update 1 with the light pastel green.

The basic design is awesome, I would hope for something more interesting with the F1-F12 keys though since they stick out like sore thumbs. If not some kind of novelties, then staying with the aesthetic maybe just \\f1 \\f2 etc in same font style as the mods

Totally agree! ;)

There are mold pbt shiny (starry night and Little pilot) and mold matte (First set kam Wraith). Honestly, for this set i prefer mold pbt shiny

Yeah my bad, I always associated shiny with ABS, when KAM (shiny or matte) has always been PBT.

And yes I totally agree, this needs to be PBT shiny.

The positive reception to this colourway makes me think that something like Solarized Dark done in KAT could be nice, maybe even if desaturated.

One question about this. If you are going for the shell experience then why use "execute"? It's exec in the shell.

ben@NCC-71854:~$ execute irssi
execute: command not found
