Kitty – Putty with extra purrrrrr

I’ve been looking around recently for a nicer way to manage my Putty saved sessions – I’ve been getting involved with a much larger environment lately, and a giant list of names is less appealing. There are quite a lot of tools around that “wrap” Putty to add new features of various kinds, but they’re a bit clunky.

On the other hand, Kitty is a true fork of Putty, with some very cool extra features:

  • Nested folders in the saved sessions
  • Act as your local terminal for cygwin shells – no more DOS box
  • Drag files straight onto the terminal to upload over PSCP
  • Portable version with sessions saved to a file alongside the .exe
  • Still talks with Pageant etc for SSH infrastructure

It’s early days so far, but I think it might be squish time for Putty.
