Add Search to Hyper

Hyper is a nice terminal emulator for MacOS and others which does not have a search feature by default.

To add search to the Hyper terminal emulator app:

Open ~/.hyper.js (or click Hyper/Preferences… ) with a text editor.

Find the plugins value and add the following:


plugins: [


Then install the hyper search plugin:

$ npm install hyper-search

Now restart Hyper, and search should work the usual way (e.g. Command+f on MacOS).
