20 to get started.

And LinuxLinks: 22 Best Free Linux Terminal Emulators (Updated 2020)

Linuxcommand Power terminals

HEY!!!!  @Linuxcommand: Termux app for Android

Looks good on my tablet must try on my phone.
Tiny eye-straining fonts though.

And an old (2004) but interesting read:

Re: Fun with Terminals 2020 version ...

Nothing geekier than updating my home pi server via terminal on the phone. ^

Quick test on this old machine,

Alacritty does build with some warnings, but can't start (I'am guessing due to primitive/old graphics card),

Terminus does install also (deb on the page), but runs in slow motion... (takes ~10s just to start), so back to urxvt.

Re: Fun with Terminals 2020 version ...

^ Those that are part of a desktop environment will pull in lots of stuff.
Terminology belongs to enlightenment.
There's Cool Retro Term which has lots of geeky effects, can be configured to use very little resources, and has few dependencies.

Re: Fun with Terminals 2020 version ...

had to hunt for a "kitty.conf" file though, it does not install one.

And "kitty.litter" didn't work.  big_smile

Fira Core font looks good.

Did you find a kitty.conf?

If not, scroll to the bottom of the page and click on the bold text "sample kitty.conf" for a well commented default kitty.conf.

kitty is a resource hog, but some awesome features. Runs great in Wayland.
