hyperterm-summon v2.0.9

Summon your Hyperterm windows with a system-wide hotkey


Build Status code style: prettier

Summon your Hyper windows with a system-wide hotkey.

In a multi-window situation, hyperterm-summon will remember the last active window and restore focus to it.

If Hyper is already active when the hotkey is pressed, your terminal windows will be hidden and (on macOS only) your previously-active application will regain focus.


  1. Open your Hyper config file (i.e. ~/.hyper.js) in your preferred text editor.
  2. Add hyperterm-summon to the plugins array found in the Hyper config.


hideDockHide the Hyper icon in the dock and app switcher.false
hideOnBlurHide the Hyper when window loses focus.false
hotkeyShortcut to toggle Hyper window visibility.Ctrl+;

NOTE: For a list of valid shortcuts, see Electron Accelerators.

Example Config

  config: {
    summon: {
      hideDock: true,
      hideOnBlur: true,
      hotkey: 'Alt+Super+O'
  plugins: [
