I was introduced to a very nice tool yesterday: tmux. It's very much like screen which I have been using for years, but actively developed and better. The quality of tmux's code was apparently enough to impress Theo de Raadt which is good enough for me! ;)

  • Ctrl+b % (split screen vertically)
  • Ctrl+b " (split screen horizontally)
  • Ctrl+b left|right|up|down (navigate among sections)
  • Ctrl+b d (detatch, "tmux a" to reconnect)
  • Ctrl+b PageUp (enter scrolling mode – Up / Down to scroll, Esc to exit)

That's all the keys I need!
