Having a terminal you can use at installation time, especially while debugging, is pretty handy. With YaST, you can open a terminal anytime (ctrl+alt+shift+x) in the graphical installation. In the case of D-Installer, you need to switch to a TTY (e.g., ctrl+alt+f1) and stop seeing the installation screen. If you are installing remotely (unless you are using VNC in YaST), you must rely on SSH.
The idea of this project is to add a xterm.js terminal to D-Installer's web interface. Therefore, you will have a nicely integrated terminal for local and remote installations, so you do not need to switch to a different TTY or rely on SSH anymore.
Goal for this Hack Week
The main goal for this Hack Week is to have a working terminal that does not get in your way but it is easy to access when you need to.
