Idea

A triangulated functor $F : T \to T'$ between two triangulated categories $T$ and $T'$ is an additive functor that commutes with translation and preserves the distinguished triangles.

Triangulated functors are also called exact functors (not to be confused with the other meaning of exact functor).
