    Fun, easy to install, easy to mod.


    BATTERY LIFE (this is my main reason for not using it), many plugins aren't practical, performance is more like a browser than a terminal

    Unfortunately I had terrible battery life and RAM/CPU usage compared to iTerm 2, and didn't find many practical plugins (though many of them are cool).

    Cross-platform terminal, highly extensible, well supported.


    Occasional issues with Electron, usually fixed within a day or two.

    Been using Hyper since it's initial release. At this point I don't think I'd be comfortable using any other terminal, since I have such a consistent experience when developing on *any* platform. 10/10.

  • Pros:Β 

    Good Looking, Cross Platform (kind of)


    Doesn't work well on Windows WSL + TMUX + Powerline

    I you're on Windows machine, especially if you're working with TMUX, VIM (or NeoVIM) & powerline (or Vim-airline) inside WSL, Built-in bash or mintty terminal still the best choice for now.

    Current issues of mine with TMUX & VIM:

    - Colour simply incorrect in some cases (vim syntax, powerline or vim airline, tmux, zsh (oh-my-zsh theme) etc)

    - Cursor navigation & text selections are terrible.

    > Can't navigate to another panes nor window on Tmux (or Tabs on Vim). If you have 2 panes opened (vim nor tmux).

    > Can't selecting the text on one side of your pane only, you'll end up with selecting all texts appears in the terminal window

    - Scrolling is even worse, especially after risizing the window inside tmux or vim

    Beautiful, easily customizable so you can make your terminal really personal.


    Can be slow a little sometimes, but this doesn't happen often and I'll accept it for the tradeoff of everything else it offers.

    I haven't had any issues with it, been very happy and using it for almost a year now. Issues are resolved quickly and there's a great community and a lot of plugins.

    Really customisable!


    None from me

    It's really easy to build plugins, and has a great community around it!

    Hackable. JavaScript. Theming is fun, checkout Shades-of-Purple πŸ¦„ Theme


    Many of those were solved in version 2.0.0 πŸ‘Œ

    I really like Hyper terminal. It's hackable and easy to use. Built a few themes for it as well. The JavaScript eco-system + terminal is FTW.

    Speed and handling improvements


    Can stutter under more verbose outputs

    Changes made into version 2 have dramatically increased stability and for most task can be used as the day to day terminal.
