kitty

Version 0.24.1

GPU-accelerated terminal emulator.

kitty overview

kitty is a fast, featureful, GPU based terminal emulator

Highlights:
  • Offloads rendering to the GPU for lower system load and buttery smooth scrolling. Uses threaded rendering to minimize input latency
  • Supports all modern terminal features: graphics (images), unicode, true-color, OpenType ligatures, mouse protocol, focus tracking, bracketed paste and several new terminal protocol extensions
  • Supports tiling multiple terminal windows side by side in different layouts without needing to use an extra program like tmux
  • Can be controlled from scripts or the shell prompt, even over SSH
  • Has a framework for Kittens, small terminal programs that can be used to extend kitty's functionality. For example, they are used for Unicode input, Hints and Side-by-side diff
  • Supports startup sessions which allow you to specify the window/tab layout, working directories and programs to run on startup
  • Cross-platform: kitty works on Linux and macOS, but because it uses only OpenGL for rendering, it should be trivial to port to other Unix-like platforms
  • Allows you to open the scrollback buffer in a separate window using arbitrary programs of your choice. This is useful for browsing the history comfortably in a pager or editor
  • Has multiple copy/paste buffers, like vim

    The developer is Kovid Goyal, developer of the remarkable Calibre application. -> https://kovidgoyal.net/ <- He's a hero of mine! (Even if he does *gag* like Ayn Rand and can't cook). If Kovid is 'codear' he's forgiven. Have a read through his website. He's a left-right brainer out to freely help the computer community and that's all right with me. I'm happy to support his work and try out 'kitty'.

    the user codear has a visit count of 1, so this is a typical developer self comment. can't say if its good, but how the settings are handled seems complicated.
