When I wrote about tmux for the first time, I was just getting into the idea of nesting sessions. I ran a local tmux session that wrapped remote tmux sessions for more than a year before I switched it up again. I added another level. Background # I originally started nesting tmux sessions so that I wouldn’t have to use tabs in Terminal to keep track of different remote tmux sessions.
Update: I refined my configuration. See it here. For the longest time, I was a screen user. Then, a little while ago, I discovered tmux, the next generation terminal multiplexer. Not only is it easier to search for on google, it has a rich and consistent configuration language. I’ve figured out a rather unique tmux configuration and I wanted to share it. Background # Originally, I just used tmux on remote servers to control several windows.
