Finally good looking terminal. Unfortunately, really heavy on resources and sometimes influences system performance.

This trend of using electron to make simple apps needs to die. What's next, an unit converter that is a 100mb electron app?

Nice and all but the integration with basic tools like vim are not that good. I was tolerating that until I tried to copy the content of my selection using the 3rd button of my mouse or the right click, not working ok... Then by mistake realise that you need to right click then shift+insert to have it work... Also a bit heavy on the performance some time.

Nice looking & extensible via plugins, some display errors make it unusable sometimes

I am looking for the iTerm of Windows. Electron-based... eww. Also, very first experience: Ctrl+C, which in every single other console clears the command and gets you a clean prompt. Nope, not here.

The fact that Hyper is implemented using Electron in awesome. Begin hosted on GitHub is awesome.

However, feature-wise, even the default GNOME terminal is better. Midnight Commander looks a little shitty in Hyper. And do you honestly need fireworks when you type commands?!

Tabs make it visually hard to distinguish which the active tab is.

You are right, it definitely lacks functionality. But it looks fucking awesome. I mean jaw-dropping Awesome.

I have to agree. It lacks features compared with others. But it's visually configurable with CSS, I think that's the selling point. I've configured it to have animated CSS scanlines. It's also a way to create custom "skins" for console apps like roguelikes (I love me some classic roguelike games).

    Was enticed by the wonderful website and promise of plugins. Quickly realized this is the weakest terminal app I have ever used. On Mac OS at least default terminal app is MUCH better.
