    Shell emits sexyness while GUI just sweats it out.

    If you're calling it, "terminal," then I'm guessing you're using a Mac, and using the default terminal app. If so, do yourself a massive favor and install iTerm2. It is the best terminal emulator I have seen on any platform. It's god-damned brilliant.

    mac terminals are sexy as fuck... iterm2, the default terminal, both with stock configs look great imo

    @bahua I actually switched to iterm2 about a month ago, exactly because of comments like this. I've yet to figure out why it's so much better?

    Split screen into as many sessions as your display can legibly hold, multiple input, keyboard text selection(love this one), tmux integration, clipboard and command history across multiple concurrent sessions, and a thousand other features that are beyond the scope of a simple devrant comment. I also like that it closes when you exit the terminal you're in, rather than remaining open with a message about how the app is done, like the default terminal.

    @bahua I definitely feel like I should look into it more, but it sounds like features I already have with zsh and tmux

    Aside from the fact that it just looks better than terminal, I would still use it just for being able to hit cmd-f to start searching the buffer, and tabbing to complete a line and copying that to the clipboard. I would disown my kids to be able to do that with xterm.

    @Mc-Lovin using an electron app as a terminal is a sin.

    @ewpratten it looks very nice though... I use it just for notes, otherwise alacritty
