The best and greatest tmux.conf ever
Create a tmux conf file
#> touch ~/.tmux.conf
Install TMP
#> git clone https://github.com/tmux-plugins/tpm ~/.tmux/plugins/tpm
[Copy and paste tmux.conf below into local file.]
Load tmux configurations
#> tmux source-file ~/.tmux.conf
Note, some actions, like opening folders
or starting apps from with tmux, do not work properly.
To fix this, on OSX:
#> brew install reattach-to-user-namespace
#> vi ~/.bash_aliases
and add these lines
alias sublime='reattach-to-user-namespace sublime'
alias open='reattach-to-user-namespace open'
Then load the changes
#> source ~/.bash_aliases
#####
# Instructions
####
# BE SURE TO INSTALL TMUX Plugin Manager
# https://github.com/tmux-plugins/tpm
# git clone https://github.com/tmux-plugins/tpm ~/.tmux/plugins/tpm
# then Load tmux configurations
#> tmux source-file ~/.tmux.conf
# Once installed load plugins in your session with
#> ctrl-b + I
# Once installed:
# prefix + y = copy line to clipboard
# prefix + ctrl-s = Persist session
# prefix + ctrl-r = Resurect session
# For all other commands, see cheat sheet:
# http://www.dayid.org/comp/tm.html

# Settings including active mouse, scrolling and more ...
