  • GitHub repo xterm.js

    A terminal for the web

    Project mention: XtermWM - Text-based window manager for the terminal | reddit.com/r/commandline | 2021-03-10

    On the terminals side, when I first put the sixel code out there in October 2018, only xterm and RLogin could run it without crashing. Since then I have helped six other terminals shore up their image support, made some tests for new terminals, and reported on the work to the larger ecosystem. When vte's and xterm.js's sixel support gets out there, I believe we will have critical mass for images in the terminal to be the new normal.
