I have saved a few Terminator profiles with different colors etc. How is it possible to activate a specific profile from the command line, or initially run terminator with a specific profile?

The main goal is to be able to activate profile "Prod" when we ssh to production, and "Stage" when we ssh to the staging-environment. So if there is such a terminator option then an alias can run the ssh command and then change the profile adequately.

Use the command

terminator -p <profile_name> &

to start Terminator with the desired profile.

(The & is to run Terminator in the background so it doesn't block the shell.)
