Install this Terminal Emulator made with TypeScript

Tabby is a terminal emulator available for Windows, macOS and GNU/Linux for several architectures including: x86 and ARM.

It is infinitely customizable to use Shell locally or via SSH and Telnet.


You can download it directly from their repository releases page. As I said, there are binaries for different architectures and operating systems.

For example, in distros GNU/Linux you can use up to one AppImage:

Example for: x86_62

wget -q
chmod +x tabby-1.0.205-linux-x64.AppImage

It will now open and work!

For Windows, macOS and others you can also install through pre-compiled binaries: .exe, .dmg, .deb and others.


Absolutely everything you do on other emulators is possible with Tabby, such as:

  • Change cursor type: I-Beam, Block and Line
  • Set color themes
  • Customize font +…

If you click on the gear icon (⚙️ ) in the top right corner, and then click on Appearance at the end there is the possibility of inserting CSS in: Custom CSS. For example, to make the background transparent and with an image, add this CSS:

.xterm-viewport {
    background-image: url("/path/to/image.jpg");
    background-repeat: no-repeat;
    background-size: auto 100vh;
    opacity: 0.2;
    z-index: 1;
    filter: blur(8px);

And many other customizations!

I installed it and I’m enjoying it, I even wrote this article on Neovim opened by Tabby.
