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

It looks like the current version now requires macOS 10.14. Any chance of adding back support for macOS 10.13?

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.

excellent - cross platform, blazing fast terminal emulator with unique features, like unicode search, configuration terminal, gpu accelerated rendering, ligatures etc. if you frequently use terminal emulator and work on different operating systems - perfect choice.
