       tilda - a highly configurable terminal emulator


       Tilda is a terminal emulator which is highly configurable. The main distinguishing feature
       of tilda is that it uses a configurable shortcut to show and hide the tilda  window.  This
       allows  users  to  quickly  switch  between  tilda and other windows only through keyboard
       shortcuts. When tilda is hidden it will move outside of the screen  until  a  shortcut  is
       pressed again to show the tilda window. The behaviour of tilda can be configured using the
       preferences dialog that is available via the context menu. A subset  of  the  options  can
       also be configured from the command line as documented below.

       Please note that currently command line options override the settings in the configuration
       file and are persisted into the configuration file.

       Tilda is currently not officially supported on Wayland. Starting with Tilda 1.5.0 it  will
       be  able  to start under Wayland but the pull hotkey will only work from other X11 windows
       but not when a native Wayland window has the focus.
