Managed to build Mosh on my phone and thought I'd share this with you guys.

What "Mosh"?

Remote terminal application that allows roaming, supports intermittent connectivity, and provides intelligent local echo and line editing of user keystrokes.

Mosh is a replacement for SSH. It's more robust and responsive, especially over Wi-Fi, cellular, and long-distance links.

Mosh is free software, available for GNU/Linux, FreeBSD, Solaris, Mac OS X, and Android
Please ask if these instructions don't work. I did many steps forwards and backwards while trying to build some libs manually and installing some using pkcon, so ask if they don't work as intended:

1) First, the dependencies. Open terminal and type:

pkcon install zlib-devel protobuf-compiler protobuf-devel ncurses-devel openssl-devel
2) Open browser / use wget / whatnot to download:

3) In the terminal again:

# insert your developer mode password
cd /home/nemo/Downloads # or other folder where the file is
tar xvfz mosh-1.2.4.tar.gz
cd mosh-1.2.4
make install
Please note that you'll also need make, gcc, and gcc-c++ packages installed.

EDIT: Important note! As you'll install this by compiling Mosh manually from sources, you'll be yourself responsible for possible security updates in the future. So keep checking the website every now and then to keep your Mosh secure.
