Everything I Installed on My New Mac

Alacritty is my terminal of choice. It's super customizable and plenty fast. It doesn't get in your way and just lets you get things done. It doesn't have tabs like iTerm or Kitty but I don't mind that because I use it with tmux which I have previously written about in my workflow post.
Warp? A terminal behind login popup
6 projects | dev.to | 1 Jun 2023
My journey of using terminal emulators began together with my introduction to Linux about 7 years ago. GNOME terminal was my first as it came pre-installed on Ubuntu, my first Linux distribution. Since then, I've had the opportunity to explore and utilize a range of terminal emulators, including Alacritty, Kitty, st, Konsole, xterm, and most recently iTerm2. It's been interesting to experiment with these different emulators, each offering its unique features (or similar however with each with personal touch), user interfaces, and performance benchmarks. Just the other day, a new terminal emulator caught my attention: Warp Terminal. My curiosity won, and Warp was downloaded, this short blog are my thoughts about Warp terminal. At the moment there is only support for macOS, however linux and windows builds are on the way.

Terminal app built over WebGPU, WebAssembly and Rust

Spare a thought for we developers of terminal emulators. The block and line drawing characters have been being bodged since the time that IBM added the extra 9th column in hardware.
I have a fairly trivial bodge for them in mine. Kovid Goyal over a period of 7 years has built up an extensive system for overriding the glyphs for block and line drawing characters that are supplied in fonts and replacing them with ones that Kitty constructs itself, all started because they just didn't line up when using what the fonts supplied.

Are We Sixel Yet

It's interesting to read the discussion about Sixel support in Kitty , where the pros and cons of Sixel are considered in relationship with Kitty. In particular, I find this comment  by the maintainer of libsixel particularly intriguing:
> After I took over the maintainership of libsixel I unfortunately decided it cannot support the security demands of Kitty, it is too insecure internally. I need to write a Rust library or something.

I believe you can create a TTF font with embedded bitmaps in it. At the specific size, it should use the bitmap font. At other sizes ... , well, don't do that.
