The robot future of terminals.

Welcome to Terminator’s documentation!

Sometimes it is not always clear just how many little shortcuts and features there are in Terminator. This manual hopes to reduce the confusion.

A quick word on style. I have none. 😃 I have casual way of talking and writing, and a strange sense of humour. I also tend to use random pop-culture references a lot, but often in ways that make no sense. If this is a problem you are entitled to a refund of the money you paid to me to write this... 😎

What is Terminator

At its simplest Terminator is a terminal emulator like xterm, gnome-terminal, konsole, etc. At its most complex it lets you fly... metaphorically at least. Take a look at the following list:

  • Arrange terminals in a grid-like structure
  • Tabs
  • Drag and drop re-ordering of terminals
  • Lots of keyboard shortcuts
  • Save multiple layouts and profiles via GUI preferences editor
  • Simultaneous typing to arbitrary groups of terminals
  • Extensible through plugins

and lots more...
