DOP 259: Reimagining the Terminal Experience With Wave Terminal

Posted on Wednesday, Apr 17, 2024

Show Notes

#259: Terminals have been around for decades, serving as the backbone of many workflows and operations in the tech world. From managing servers to local file manipulation, terminals offer a direct line to the heart of computing. However, with the advent of graphical user interfaces (GUIs), the terminal’s prominence has waned among the general user base, though it remains a powerhouse for those who know how to wield it.

Wave Terminal has emerged as a beacon of innovation in the static terminal landscape, bringing with it a host of features that leverage today’s technology without abandoning the terminal’s foundational principles. This modern terminal solution integrates technology, specifically Electron and Go, to create a user interface that feels familiar yet vastly more powerful.

In this episode, Darin and Viktor discuss these topics in depth with Mike Sawka, the founder of Wave Terminal, shedding light on the innovative features and the vision for Wave Terminal’s future.
