  • wezterm

    A GPU-accelerated cross-platform terminal emulator and multiplexer written by @wez and implemented in Rust

  • kitty

    Cross-platform, fast, feature-rich, GPU based terminal

    kitty is also worth a look, though it doesn't run on Windows:


    I used iTerm2 on macOS for many years and still keep it around, but switched to kitty as my daily driver in late 2021 and have been very happy with it.

  • alacritty

    A cross-platform, OpenGL terminal emulator.

    Main thing was support for ligatures which Alacritty does not support: https://github.com/alacritty/alacritty/issues/50

  • cuda-api-wrappers

    Thin C++-flavored header-only wrappers for core CUDA APIs: Runtime, Driver, NVRTC, NVTX.

    > since the underlying API's are still C/C++,

    If the use of GPUs is via CUDA, there are my https://github.com/eyalroz/cuda-api-wrappers/ which are RAII/CADRe, and therefore less unsafe. And on the Rust side - don't you need a bunch of unsafe code in the library enabling GPU support?
