Hyper Match


Hyper v2 now uses xterm.js which supports link detection out of the box.

Mentioned in Awesome Hyper npm

An extension for Hyper that binds commands to patterns detected in the terminal. When a pattern is detected, it is rendered as a hyperlink which will execute your command on click.

Patterns such as urls, email addresses and file paths can be configured to do anything when clicked, for example: open a browser, email client, or file manager.

Inspired by iterm's Triggers. Based on hyperlinks.



Install Hyper and add hyper-match to plugins in ~/.hyper.js.

Customizing styles

Add custom styles to termCSS in your ~/.hyper.js.

termCSS: `
    x-screen a {
        color: #ff2e88;
        text-decoration: none;

    x-screen a.hover {
        text-decoration: underline;


A trigger has the following properties:

  • name: Unique identifier for a trigger
  • pattern: A regular expression
  • strategy: A command to be executed when a link is clicked. hyper-match uses .replace() under the hood to output parameters into the supplied strategy.
    • $&: Inserts the matched substring.
    • $: Inserts the portion of the string that precedes the matched substring.
    • $': Inserts the portion of the string that follows the matched substring.
    • $n: Where n is a positive integer less than 100, inserts the nth parenthesized submatch string, provided the first argument was a RegExp object. Note that this is 1-indexed.
  • options: Regular expression options
  • priority: Defines the weight of a pattern and is used if the pattern conflicts with another
  • linkColor: A CSS color
