kitty: Open a terminal with the specified title for the window.
$ kitty --title "${title}"
try on your machine

The command "kitty --title "${title}"" is used to set the title of the Kitty terminal window. Here's a breakdown of its components:

  • "kitty": This is the command used to launch the Kitty terminal emulator. Kitty is a modern, feature-rich terminal emulator that supports various customization options.

  • "--title": This is an argument or option flag provided to the kitty command. It specifies that the following value should be considered as the title of the terminal window.

  • "${title}": This is a variable or placeholder that represents the actual title you want to set for the terminal window. The value of "${title}" would typically be replaced with a specific string when running the command. For example, if you want to set the title to "My Terminal", you would replace "${title}" with "My Terminal".
