terminal multiplexer
  8 reviews

Tmux enables a number of terminals (or windows) to be accessed and controlled from a single terminal like screen. tmux runs as a server-client system. A server is created automatically when necessary and holds a number of sessions, each of which may have a number of windows linked to it. Any number of clients may connect to a session, or the server may be controlled by issuing commands with tmux. Communication takes place through a socket, by default placed in /tmp. Moreover tmux provides a consistent and well-documented command interface, with the same syntax whether used interactively, as a key binding, or from the shell. It offers a choice of vim or Emacs key layouts.

Love this ever since I found it on 'Learn Linux TV' on youtube. I have an ultrawide and I'm using this to help me become more proficient with the CLI. I can remote SSH, manage LXC's, rean man pages, run local commands, and more, all in the same window - or navigate multiple windows!

with tmux you can run persistant sessions on a remote terminal; if you have a big screen it can be very handy to split your terminal into panes. for example read man pages on the left, and try out the information on the commandline in the right pane.

Screen wasn't such a good name from the beginning.
