Just wanted to drop a line to the tmux crew and say thank you. I know terminal multiplexing has been around for a while, but never really caught the full benefit until tmux and the book over at The Pragmatic Bookshelf. What’s most beneficial:
It allows me to switch gears really fast
I’m an engineer full time, I also happen to do a bunch of system administration. When I was turned toward tmux, I wasn’t sure it would be worth the time. In about 4 hours, I started seeing benefit, and after 2 days, I couldn’t go without it anymore.
For more on how I use it, I have two branches for my dotfiles; one’s for Mac, and ones for Linux. Take a look at tmux.conf. It’s pretty straight forward VIM type replacements as the book suggested, maybe an addition or subtraction, but wow, what a book.
