MacTerm on OS X is now a complete replacement for Terminal, allowing access to both local and remote applications.
Its many features include powerful terminals (with or without tabs), a very flexible preferences system, TEK vector graphics, dynamic search, notifications and keep-alive, macros, a floating command line window, special keypads, a session manager, and even a basic Python scripting interface. It's also free software under the GPL.
- Terminals now support "true" color (24-bit, millions) by default. Both standard and common non-standard variants are emulated. For example, a shell command like 'printf "33[1;38:2::245:;48:2:40:177:249m hello 33[0mn"' would print the word 'hello' in bold green text on a bluish background, and so would 'printf "33[1;38;2;0;245;0;48;2;40;177;249m hello 33[0mn"'.
- OS X 10.9 or later
