Bug Description

Allow to pilot terminator through CLI like what allows Guake:
 - create new terminal (through horizontal/vertical split)
 - create new tab
 - clear a terminal (terminal identified by its uuid or the focussed one)
 - run a command in a terminal (terminal identified by its uuid or the focussed one)
 - allow to chain previous command

It s quite in the same movement asreminator but can be done from inside/outside terminator

Proof of Concept implementation through a plugin:
 https://github.com/ZZelle/misc/blob/master/terminator/zzmote.py

description: updated

This is already partially implemented in trunk with the DBus API and the "remotinator" tool - in that you can split a terminal. The other features you requested do not yet exist, but they should.

Changed in terminator:

I committed an update to the remotinator script that adds a number of improvements/enhancements. It can be run from elsewhere now by passing the --uuid parameter.

 - create new terminal (through horizontal/vertical split)
      Can already be done.

 - create new tab
      Can now be done, along with a new window.

 - clear a terminal (terminal identified by its uuid or the focussed one)
      Should be straightforward for a newbie (hint-hint) to add for uuid. For focussed we probably need another call to get the focussed terminals uuid, and then use that.

 - run a command in a terminal (terminal identified by its uuid or the focussed one)
      As per the previous entry.

 - allow to chain previous command
      Not clear what you mean here. Do mean getting a return code so your script can branch based on it?
