tabby Documentation

Some Fossies usage hints in advance:

  1. To see the Doxygen generated documentation please click on one of the items in the steelblue colored "quick index" bar above or use the side panel at the left which displays a hierarchical tree-like index structure and is adjustable in width.
  2. If you want to search for something by keyword rather than browse for it you can use the client side search facility (using Javascript and DHTML) that provides live searching, i.e. the search results are presented and adapted as you type in the Search input field at the top right.
  3. Doxygen doesn't incorporate all member files but just a definable subset (basically the main project source code files that are written in a supported language). So to search and browse all member files you may visit the Fossies tabby-1.0.177.tar.gz contents page and use the Fossies standard member browsing features (also with source code highlighting and additionally with optional code folding).

Contents

What Tabby is and isn't

  • Tabby is an alternative to Windows' standard terminal (conhost), PowerShell ISE, PuTTY, macOS Terminal.app and iTerm

  • Tabby is not a new shell or a MinGW or Cygwin replacement. Neither is it lightweight - if RAM usage is of importance, consider Conemu or Alacritty

Terminal features

  • A V220 terminal + various extensions
  • Multiple nested split panes
  • Tabs on any side of the window
  • Optional dockable window with a global spawn hotkey ("Quake console")
  • Progress detection
  • Notification on process completion
  • Bracketed paste, multiline paste warnings
  • Font ligatures
  • Custom shell profiles
  • Optional RMB paste and copy-on select (PuTTY style)

SSH Client

  • SSH2 client with a connection manager
  • X11 and port forwarding
  • Automatic jump host management
  • Agent forwarding (incl. Pageant and Windows native OpenSSH Agent)
  • Login scripts

Serial Terminal

  • Saved connections
  • Readline input support
  • Optional hex byte-by-byte input and hexdump output
  • Newline conversion
  • Automatic reconnection

Portable

Tabby will run as a portable app on Windows, if you create a data folder in the same location where Tabby.exe lives.

Plugins

Plugins and themes can be installed directly from the Settings view inside Tabby.

  • docker - connect to Docker containers
  • title-control - allows modifying the title of the terminal tabs by providing a prefix, suffix, and/or strings to be removed
  • quick-cmds - quickly send commands to one or all terminal tabs
  • save-output - record terminal output into a file
  • sync-config - sync the config to Gist or Gitee
  • clippy - an example plugin which annoys you all the time
  • workspace-manager - allows creating custom workspace profiles based on the given config
  • search-in-browser - opens default system browser with a text selected from the Tabby's tab
