    Warp is a modern, Rust-based terminal with AI built in so you and your team can build great software, faster.

    Hi! I’m Aloke, an engineer at Warp.

    I’m really excited to share that Warp is now available on Linux! If you’re interested in trying it out, you can download Warp: https://warp.dev/

    Building Warp on Linux was quite an undertaking. Warp uses a custom Rust-based UI framework that we built in house and renders natively on the GPU. To get Warp running on Linux, we built a version of our UI framework that supports winit [1] as a windowing backend. We also built a version of our renderer that uses wgpu [2]. Reducing complexity by using these well-supported, cross platform, frameworks let us bootstrap a version of Linux quicker than expected and should make it easier to build Warp for other platforms (like Windows).

    Please let me know what you think! Happy to answer any questions, either about the product or about technical challenges.
