It also aims to be completely cross platform, with full Windows support. If you're on Windows, I would not recommend using the default terminal software. Use Windows Terminal instead, and make sure it works with UTF-8. Note that some of the application colors might not display correctly on Windows, but all functionality will still work.
It fully passes Sean Conman's client torture test, as well as the Egsam one.
Download a binary from the releases page. On Unix-based systems you will have to make the file executable with
chmod +x <filename>. You can rename the file to just
amfora for easy access, and move it to
On Windows, make sure you click "Advanced > Run anyway" after double-clicking, or something like that.
Unix systems can install the desktop entry file to get Amfora to appear when they search for applications:
curl -sSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/makeworld-the-better-one/amfora/master/amfora.desktop -o ~/.local/share/applications/amfora.desktop update-desktop-database ~/.local/share/applications
Make sure to click "Watch" in the top right, then "Custom" > "Releases" to get notified about new releases!
Amfora is packaged in many Linux distros. It's also on Scoop for Windows users.
If you use Homebrew, you can install Amfora through the my personal tap.
brew tap makeworld-the-better-one/tap brew install amfora
You can update it with:
brew upgrade amfora
If you're using Termux on Android you can't just run Amfora like normal. After installing Amfora, run
pkg install proot. Then run
termux-chroot before running the Amfora binary. You can exit out of the chroot after closing Amfora. See here for why this is needed.
This section is for advanced users who want to install the latest (possibly unstable) version of Amfora.
Please note the Makefile does not intend to support Windows, and so there may be issues.
git clone https://github.com/makeworld-the-better-one/amfora cd amfora # git checkout v1.2.3 # Optionally pin to a specific version instead of the latest commit make # Might be gmake on macOS sudo make install # If you want to install the binary for all users
Because you installed with the Makefile, running
amfora -v will tell you exactly what commit the binary was built from.
Arch Linux users can also install the latest commit of Amfora from the AUR. It has the package name
amfora-git, and is maintained by @lovetocode999
yay -S amfora-git
MacOS users can also use Homebrew to install the latest commit of Amfora:
brew tap makeworld-the-better-one/tap brew install --HEAD amfora

Features in italics are in the master branch, but not in the latest release.
Please see the wiki for an introduction on how to use Amfora and configure it.
