alacritty. No fancy retro effects or GUI enhancements on top of commands. Just great performance.
Oh shit, gpu accelerated? I’m definitely going to check this out. Though for the record, I’ve been using Simple Terminal for the last few years.
Yep, I’ve been using st as well, before alacritty came out.
Didn’t know terminal performance mattered until I tried alacritty, so +1
I’ve settled for now on Tilix after trying or re-trying various including:
I want something like the OSX iTerm which just seemed to do what I want without a lot of friction. I’d prefer tabs and panes over windows but as long as I get fast rendering, 24-bit color, and can remap the keystrokes I’m happy. Tilix seems to fit the bill. I’d like to take advantage of triggers but haven’t gotten around to rebuilding vte.
I’ve also been using tilix for a few weeks now. I was a user of urxvt before, but I wanted to have tabs (otherwise I end up with 15-20 terms opened) and I wanted better font rendering than urxvt. I tried alacritty, but its lack of features was problematic (no true underlining, no scrollback, can’t dim the terminal when it’s not the active window, etc.)
Tilix is a pretty good terminal emulator. I have one problem with it, when I launch it, sometimes it fails to raise to the top in Openbox, so I need to Alt-Tab it in.
xiki looks great, though i would prefer if there were more documentation to read before I install it.
After trying urxvt, st, xfce4-terminal and a few others, I settled on sakura because of great unicode support (I can’t remember the details, but e.g. st failed on some stuff from http://www.madore.org/~david/misc/unitest/ that sakura handled fine). It also starts fast, and has full colour support.
