Three reasons why I really like the
kitty terminal emulator
Easy dependencies - You don’t need to get your package manager involved. You can download a zip with all needed dependencies (tested on Ubuntu 18.10) from Github. Comes with a cute icon.
Built-in window splitting - no need to use
tmux. Open a new window with
ctrl+shift+enterand sample through the window layouts with
Side-by-side diff - it’s much more helpful than the standard
difftool. Use it via
kitty +kitten diff <file1> <file2>
Go try it!
