Install Hyper on Raspberry Pi


A modern electron terminal

Hyper is an Electron-based terminal.

  • Built on HTML/CSS/JS
  • Fully extensible
  • Install themes and plugins from the command line

Run from Terminal: hyper
Run from Menu: Menu -> Accessories -> Hyper

Fortunately, Hyper is very easy to install on your Raspberry Pi in just two steps.

  1. Install Pi-Apps - the best app installer for Raspberry Pi.
  2. Use Pi-Apps to install Hyper.


For the best chance of this working, we recommend using the latest version of Raspberry Pi OS, which is currently version Bookworm.
Raspberry Pi OS has 32-bit and 64-bit variants, both of which will run on most Raspberry Pi computers, including the Pi 3, Pi 4, and Pi5.
Hyper will run on either PiOS 32-bit or 64-bit.
