Terminus是现代化、可高度可配置的终端应用 适用于Windows、Mac和Linux系统

Hands up if use GNOME Terminal as your default terminal on Ubuntu?


That’s a lot of hands.


GNOME Terminal is great. It’s fast, featured, and straightforward. But it doesn’t hurt to try a few alternatives to it from time to time. Be it the vintage chic of retro term or the modern minimalism of Hyper.

GNOME的Terminal非常棒。它的快速,富有特色和简单直截。 但是这也不妨碍时不时地尝试一些代替方案。 无论是复古老式的retro term,还是现代简约的Hyper

Today we present you with another promising alternative. It’s currently in alpha (so expect bugs).

今天我们向您介绍另一个不错的选择。 它目前是alpha版(所以预期会有bug)。

It’s called Terminus.


Terminus Terminal App

Terminus 终端应用

Terminus bills itself a ‘terminal for a more modern age’. It’s cross-platform (which is rare, to be fair) and is built using web technologies (you’re free to scream because yet it’s Electron).

Terminus 本身就是一个“ 更现代化的终端 ”。它是跨平台的(公平讲这很少见),并使用网站技术构建(你可以放肆地尖叫了因为它是电子的)。

It has a flat, minimal UI that is ‘designed for people who need to get things done’. It reminds me a little bit of the ‘converged terminal app‘ that Ubuntu developers were working on.

它有一个扁平的,最小化的UI,“专为需要完成工作的人”。 这让我想起了Ubuntu开发人员正在开发的“融合终端应用程序”。

Among its features:

  • Spawn new terminal with a global hotkey
  • Tabs persist between session
  • Ability to dock to any side of any screen
  • Full Unicode and double-width character support
  • Keeps the current directory in new tab
  • Drag files or folders to paste path
  • Configurable hotkey schemes
  • GNU Screen style hotkeys available by default


  • 用全局热键打开新终端
  • 标签可在会话之间持续
  • 能够停靠在屏幕的任何一边
  • 完整的Unicode和双字符支持
  • 将当前目录在新选项卡中打开
  • 拖动文件或文件夹来粘贴路径
  • 可配置热键方案
  • 默认GNU屏幕热键可用

The color scheme and app theme can be configured, tweaks and customer, both by hand (adding custom .css), by selecting one of the available color schemes, or by installing theme ‘plugins’ from the NPM repository.


And yes, you can have native window borders if you want!


Windows Support

Windows 支持

I don’t have much (if any) experience with the Windows “command line” but this app works with it, including tab completion (using Clink), readline-style editing and persistent command history.


The app works with CMD and PowerShell and, more pertinent to our interests, Terminus supports Bash on Windows.

该应用与CMD和PowerShell配合使用,并且令我们更兴趣的是, Windows上 Terminus 支持Bash

Download Terminus

下载 Terminus

Fancy taking it for a spin? Of course you do!

想尝试一下么? 当然!

Firstly, please keep in mind that this app is still in alpha. It will have bugs, there will be crashes, and you probably shouldn’t rely on it for anything mission critical.

首先,请记住这个应用程序仍然是alpha版。 它会有错误,可能崩溃,你不应该用它做任何关键任务。

You can download the latest alpha release of Terminus for 64-bit Linux (including Ubuntu), macOS and Windows direct from the project Github page.

The original version of this article stated that the app isn’t based on Electron. It is. Silly me. Thanks to commenters for pointing it out.

这篇文章的原始版本表示,该应用程序不是基于电子的。 是的,我傻。 感谢评论者指出。
