Here is all I added to mine, if you wanna see the "bare minimum requirements":

# window splits
bind-key v split-window -h -c "#{pane_current_path}"
bind-key b split-window -c "#{pane_current_path}"

Is there a way to open new pane not only in same directory but alse in same shell?
For example:

  1. i open term, default SHELL is '/bin/zsh'
  2. split pane and run powershell - now i have 2 panes, with zsh and pwsh
  3. being in pwsh pane, split-pane creates another zsh pane, but pwsh needed

i've tried with setting

$env:SHELL = '%full pwsh path%'

in pwsh profile and

set-option -g default-command "${SHELL}"
set-option -g default-shell "${SHELL}"
bind '"' split-window -c "#{pane_current_path}" "${SHELL}"
bind % split-window -h -c "#{pane_current_path}" "${SHELL}"

in tmux.conf but it not works :c
