Archipelago is an open-source terminal emulator built on web technology.
Archipelago is inspired by Hyper. I started using Hyper as my default terminal while it was in beta and into v1. It was by far the coolest, best looking, minimal, and extensible terminal emulator I had used. But, I found it to be really slow, to the point where if I was going to run a command that I knew would have a lot of output, I would opt for using a different terminal. Along with that, occasionally buffers would overlap making the terminal unreadable and force me to restart.
At the time Hyper was using Hterm which was the culprit of all my issues, so I found the Xterm.js project which solved all these problems and I started making Archipelago. Archipelago works on macOS, Linux, and Windows, supports theming which can be saved to a profile, searching through the scroll-back, a visor pop over, pane splitting, system tests, and much more.
