A Wayland-native GPU-accelerated terminal emulator written in Rust
Launched in 2017, Alacritty is a terminal emulator that uses Rust (a memory-safe language) and OpenGL for rendering everything, aiming for perfomance, security, configurability, and simplicity.
A list of Alacritty's features can be found here. Alacritty is currently in beta, but is already used as a daily driver by many people. It is also the default terminal emulator for Sway, a Wayland-native WM.
Another Wayland-native, GPU-accelerated terminal emulator is kitty.
