taterm.vala runtime font scaling with ctrl-plus/minus/zero Sep 18, 2017


Taterm is a terminal emulator tailored to be used with tiling window managers. There may be special support for various window managers in the future.


  • Keep the current directory over multiple invocations

    • Single instance via Gtk.Application
  • Work on Wayland (maybe, didn't test)

  • Use VTE3 (Don't need to reinvent the wheel and everything else around it)

  • No gui clutter

    • Window, shell inside, period
  • No tabbing (tiling window manager, remember?)


  • Single instance, directory is taken from last focused terminal
  • Clicking of URIs
  • Scroll lock (WIP)
  • Clean build under latest GTK (3.3.18)
