About

I spend my every free moment improving iTerm2, the world’s greatest terminal emulator. For details on the app, see Features and Documentation.

The History of iTerm2

I wrote my first terminal emulator (and a BBS to go with it!) before entering high school. Then twenty years passed. In 2010 I discovered the abandoned iTerm project. I started contributing bug fixes to it for issues that I noticed. I published my changes to the dear departed Google Code. People started filing bug reports, and I figured I might as well fix them—why not? Before I knew it, the project took off. Since then there have been six major releases, 7000 issues, and over 8000 commits. I'm even more excited about this project now than when I began.

The Future of iTerm2

I plan to keep working on this project forever. The next version, 3.3., will include a UI refresh featuring a new window style and status bars. It will also add a powerful scripting API so users can customize the app. As always, performance improvements and polish will be added.

If you enjoy iTerm2, help support free software by giving back. Pull Requests are even better than donations, but everything helps :-)
