I switched to Vim because I was spending much of my time in a terminal. I’ve been using Screen for many years, mainly for kinda persistant tasks (like running a webcam) but found its performance a bit quirky.
I’m not going to write my own instructions on how to tmux but here are a few links that I found helpful:
Handy links I used to tmux
- A tmux Crash Course by Josh Clayton
- tmux is sweet as heck by Alex Munroe
- tmux - terminal multiplexer by Jason Wryan
I’m also currently experiencing a curious bug where in Terminal.app on Mavericks:
tmux 1.8 has a bug that causes it to unexpectedly underline all characters when the status bar requests a bold color.
