Terminal for a more modern age.

GitHub AppVeyor

GitHub All Releases Gitter

Terminus is a highly configurable terminal emulator for Windows, macOS and Linux

  • Integrated SSH client and connection manager
  • Theming and color schemes
  • Fully configurable shortcuts
  • Split panes
  • Remembers your tabs
  • PowerShell (and PS Core), WSL, Git-Bash, Cygwin, Cmder and CMD support
  • Direct file transfer from/to SSH sessions via Zmodem
  • Full Unicode support including double-width characters
  • Doesn't choke on fast-flowing outputs
  • Proper shell experience on Windows including tab completion (via Clink)

Buy me a coffee

  • Terminus is an alternative to Windows' standard terminal (conhost), PowerShell ISE, PuTTY or iTerm

  • Terminus is not a new shell or a MinGW or Cygwin replacement. Neither is it lightweight - if RAM usage is of importance, consider Conemu or Alacritty


Plugins and themes can be installed directly from the Settings view inside Terminus.

  • clickable-links - makes paths and URLs in the terminal clickable
  • title-control - allows modifying the title of the terminal tabs by providing a prefix, suffix, and/or strings to be removed
  • quick-cmds - quickly send commands to one or all terminal tabs
  • save-output - record terminal output into a file
  • scrollbar - adds a scrollbar to hterm tabs



Pull requests and plugins are welcome!
