kitty terminal emulator

2019/02/13

Three reasons why I really like the kitty terminal emulator

  1. 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.

  2. Built-in window splitting - no need to use tmux. Open a new window with ctrl+shift+enter and sample through the window layouts with ctrl+shift+l.

  3. Side-by-side diff - it’s much more helpful than the standard diff tool. Use it via kitty +kitten diff <file1> <file2>

Go try it!
