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


For portable in windows, user can create folder

at the same directory as
to save the settings.


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!

See HACKING.md and API docs for information of how the project is laid out, and a very brief plugin development tutorial.
