kitty 0.20.3 Fast, featureful, GPU based terminal emulator

Kitty is a fast and featureful GPU-based terminal emulator:

  • 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.

  • 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.
