one thing I learned from all this "simple minimal software" bullshit is that Arabic is bloat

Follow

more generally, any script that requires ligatures, RTL support, or sometimes just the ability to render non-Latin character is bloat

anyway this wraps up the saga of me finding a terminal. conclusion: alacritty, urxvt, kitty, and st all suck and don't support Arabic. I'll be using Konsole, have a good day
