Developing Webassembly Rust plugins for Zellij

Create compelling and composable components for your terminal. Share them with the community to turn your everyday development tasks into a personal and multiplayer dashboard experience. All in the language you love - Rust.

Get to know the Webassembly Plugin System of the Zellij terminal workspace.


Two years ago, I started developing Zellij in the open. I felt the terminal was an underrated and underused platform, and that we as developers could get much more out of it if we put our heads together. Today, Zellij is a vastly used terminal workspace whose philosophy is not to compromise usability for power.

In this talk, I'm very proud and excited to present our Webassemly Plugin System, and specifically how to use it to develop Rust plugins. I'll be live coding plugin development, talking about the inner workings of terminal emulators and ANSI escape codes, as well as giving some insight into the plugin system's implementation. We'll also go over some aspects of usability and how they relate to terminal applications.
