Gopherus is a top program and I wholly recommend it! I recently compiled it on
Termux on my phone -- the only problem was the keybindings, because a phone
keyboard does not readily give you F10, backspace etc. But Because the Gopherus
code is very clean and comprehensible, it is easy to modify the keybindings
yourself and recompile.

Nice to hear! In the next version I plan to add dual key bindings,
where every F-key will have an alternative (like F1 = 'h'). This
because some dumb BSD terminals have troubles to detect F-keys, I guess
it will solve the Termux problem as well.
