ConEmu vs iTerm2: What are the differences?

What is ConEmu? A free and open-source tabbed terminal emulator for Windows. It aims to be handy, comprehensive, fast and reliable terminal window where you may host any console application developed either for WinAPI (cmd, powershell, far) or Unix PTY (cygwin, msys, wsl bash).

What is iTerm2? macOS Terminal Replacement. A replacement for Terminal and the successor to iTerm. It works on Macs with macOS 10.12 or newer. iTerm2 brings the terminal into the modern age with features you never knew you always wanted.

ConEmu and iTerm2 can be primarily classified as "Terminal Emulators" tools.

Some of the features offered by ConEmu are:

  • smooth window resizing

- tabs and splits (panes)

On the other hand, iTerm2 provides the following key features:

  • Split Panes
  • Hotkey Window
  • Search

ConEmu and iTerm2 are both open source tools. It seems that iTerm2 with 8.97K GitHub stars and 905 forks on GitHub has more adoption than ConEmu with 6.17K GitHub stars and 415 GitHub forks.
