Better Tabs Kitty
Some time ago, I started using kitty terminal emulator. I used Alacritty for a long time. But Alacritty is meant to be minimalistic in a sense it does not even have concept of having different tabs.
The suggestion/solution is to use
tmux (or like) to manage different shell instances.
And I did that.
And learnt a great deal about tmux in the process.
I don’t regret it one bit.
But sometimes, tmux gets in a way of how terminal based programs look (and behave) when executed inside tmux.
Sometime, there is a way around by tweaking
But I wanted to use real terminal with tabs.
So I tried kitty.
Everything was great, but default tab style was blurry, that I could hardly see two different tabs.
Turns out one can change the
tab_bar_style - Default one is
fade (No wonder I would not see text properly)
Currently I have it set to the following:
tab_bar_style powerline tab_powerline_style round
tab_powerline_style has few other options. You can read about them here
