NAME

Alacritty − A fast, cross-platform, OpenGL terminal emulator

SYNOPSIS

alacritty [FLAGS] [OPTIONS]

DESCRIPTION

Alacritty is a modern terminal emulator that comes with sensible defaults, but allows for extensive configuration. By integrating with other applications, rather than reimplementing their functionality, it manages to provide a flexible set of features with high performance.

FLAGS

−h, −−help

Prints help information

−−hold

Remain open after child process exits

−−print−events

Print all events to stdout

−q

Reduces the level of verbosity (the min level is −qq)

−V, −−version

OPTIONS

2. $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/alacritty.yml
3. $HOME/.config/alacritty/alacritty.yml
4. $HOME/.alacritty.yml

On Windows, the configuration file is located at %APPDATA%\alacritty\alacritty.yml.

Defines the X11 window ID (as a decimal integer) to embed Alacritty within

−o, −−option <option>...
