The robot future of terminals.

Welcome to Terminator’s documentation!

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

A quick word on style. I have none. 😃 I have an 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
  • 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

and lots more...
