  • Integrated serial terminal
  • Theming and color schemes
  • Fully configurable shortcuts and multi-chord shortcuts
  • Split panes
  • Remembers your tabs
  • PowerShell (and PS Core), WSL, Git-Bash, Cygwin, MSYS2, Cmder and CMD support
  • Direct file transfer from/to SSH sessions via Zmodem
  • Full Unicode support including double-width characters
  • Doesn't choke on fast-flowing outputs
  • Proper shell experience on Windows including tab completion (via Clink)
  • Integrated encrypted container for SSH secrets and configuration

Contents

What Tabby is and isn't

  • Tabby is an alternative to Windows' standard terminal (conhost), PowerShell ISE, PuTTY, macOS Terminal.app and iTerm

  • Tabby is not a new shell or a MinGW or Cygwin replacement. Neither is it lightweight - if RAM usage is of importance, consider Conemu or Alacritty

Terminal features

  • A V220 terminal + various extensions
  • Multiple nested split panes
  • Tabs on any side of the window
  • Optional dockable window with a global spawn hotkey ("Quake console")
  • Progress detection
  • Notification on process completion
  • Bracketed paste, multiline paste warnings
  • Font ligatures
  • Custom shell profiles
  • Optional RMB paste and copy-on select (PuTTY style)

SSH Client

  • SSH2 client with a connection manager
  • X11 and port forwarding
  • Automatic jump host management
  • Agent forwarding (incl. Pageant and Windows native OpenSSH Agent)
  • Login scripts

Serial Terminal

  • Saved connections
  • Readline input support
  • Optional hex byte-by-byte input and hexdump output
  • Newline conversion
  • Automatic reconnection

Portable

Tabby will run as a portable app on Windows, if you create a data folder in the same location where Tabby.exe lives.

Plugins

Plugins and themes can be installed directly from the Settings view inside Tabby.

  • clickable-links - makes paths and URLs in the terminal clickable
  • docker - connect to Docker containers
  • title-control - allows modifying the title of the terminal tabs by providing a prefix, suffix, and/or strings to be removed
  • quick-cmds - quickly send commands to one or all terminal tabs
  • save-output - record terminal output into a file
  • sync-config - sync the config to Gist or Gitee
  • clippy - an example plugin which annoys you all the time
