An efficient and extensible TUI email client for hackers
aerc is an email client for your terminal written in go. It was originally created by Drew DeVault and is now further developed as a fork by Robin Jarry. It features a tmux-style embedded terminal, an interactive terminal web browser, diff highlighting, an embedded less session, vim-style keybindings, and support for multiple accounts. It optionally supports notmuch.
The client only downloads the information which is necessary to present the UI, making for a snappy and bandwidth-efficient experience. aerc supports IMAP, Maildir, SMTP, and sendmail transfer protocols. Asynchronous IMAP support ensures the UI never gets locked up by a flaky network, as mutt often does.
