iTerm2 - The Best Terminal App

I don’t like to post reviews. But this app is amazing! I use it more than 3 years and just want to share with you a list of my favorite features:


  • Split Panes - I started use iTerm2 because of it. Just press Cmd+d to split current panel. Cmd+Alt+Arrow to move between the panels
  • Search - Cmd+f to search throm commands and their output it work for the all session history
  • Inline images - seriously,  you can view images in your terminal. You need just to download ‘imgcat’ script and enjoy it
  • Download file from remote host - no need to use scp more, just ‘it2dl filename’ and it will download a file to ~/Downloads directory
  • Open list of most popular directories - Cmd+Alt+/ and select what you need. It’s real fast and useful
  • Restore the last session - no comments are needed here

P.S. Don’t forget to enable ‘Show Tip of the Day’ feature to enjoy more.
