@pacemkr Glad you found it helpful!

@christiangenco

Thanks for the mouseterm tip!

@fesplugas

Works like a charm! Thanks.

@agfor

Thanks, this was very helpful. What exactly does Teamocil do / why is it necessary?

@simme
Owner

@agfor It is not necessary. But I find it helps alot! It let's you define project setups, with panes and windows, in a YAML-file. And then just run a command to setup any number of windows and panes running a command. I do all my dev in the terminal, so for each project I have a YAML file that launches vim in one pane, starts SASS-compilation in another, etc etc. So I do not have to manually setup panes everytime I'm developing on a specific project.

@kennym

Thanks. This worked great!

@tkleczek

Great tip! Thanks!

@oraclebill

Thanks!

@Stuk

Thanks for the tip. I used EasySIMBL with MouseTerm on Mountain Lion and tmux on a remote Ubuntu and it works really well.

@veloper

This is so awesome, thanks for this write up. I also used EasySIMBL as @Stuk suggested -- it's working like a champ.

I'd also like to give a shout out to the Tmuxinator gem -- makes tmux setup crazy simple :)

@mattacular

Mucho gracias

@mayoralito

Nice work, thank you!

@Globegitter

Hmm, I just switched to Mac and relatively new to this whole terminal/tmux environment, but I followed all the steps and it is not working for me. Could there maybe be a problem with me using zsh? Would be really glad for any other help. If I get this to work, tmux would be perfect.

Edit: Got it working, was just an issue with reloading.
tmux source-file ~/.tmux.conf fixed it. Cheers.

Edit2:
Ok, really strange, somehow itg is not working anymore. I played a bit more with the settings and now I have even changed everything to just the necessary lines and I can't scroll anymore. Hmm, now that I think about it, I had bash instead of zsh (installed via brew) for a short time, because of misconfiguration. I can't remember though if it just worked in bash. Anyway, could that maybe be a reason? Any hints would be really appreciated.

@danslee

Thanks! You might want to add in support for pbpaste and pbcopy via the very useful reattach-to-user-namespace utility, aka tmux-MacOSX-pasteboard.

brew install reattach-to-user-namespace

followed by adding

set-option -g default-command "reattach-to-user-namespace -l <yourshellhere>"

to your .tmux.conf file.

@ahmadajmi
