Why Windows Terminal is slow

This page summarizes the projects mentioned and recommended in the original post on /r/programming

Our great sponsors
  • InfluxDB - Collect and Analyze Billions of Data Points in Real Time
  • SonarCloud - Analyze your C and C++ projects with just one click.
  • Mergify - Updating dependencies is time-consuming.
  • terminal

    The new Windows Terminal and the original Windows console host, all in the same place!

    This is a matter of context: text rendering is factually hard, but when you aren't actually working on the hard part (e.g. https://github.com/microsoft/terminal/issues/538), it makes "text rendering is hard" a pure excuse, no matter how nice you appear.

  • refterm

    Reference monospace terminal renderer

    His DWrite implementation doesn't use ClearType. Go read the code and the TODO: https://github.com/cmuratori/refterm/blob/main/refterm_example_dwrite.cpp

  • InfluxDB

    Collect and Analyze Billions of Data Points in Real Time. Manage all types of time series data in a single, purpose-built database. Run at any scale in any environment in the cloud, on-premises, or at the edge.

  • xterm.js

    A terminal for the web

    I would love to see it compared to https://github.com/xtermjs/xterm.js
