tmux is good,,,, but also, it's bad,,,
@ashfurrow Explain the bad.
@Lofenyy it's bad because I can't remember how to use it
@ashfurrow Haha this is me and modal text editors! And GNU tar!
@ashfurrow @Lofenyy I actually like tmux because I only remember ctrl-b c, and then I can actually type tmux whatever on the command line and the commands will go to the host tmux, which means I can use fancy zsh tab completions with it.
Also, I enable mouse via config which means I don’t need to remember how to resize splits or scroll.
@ashfurrow it's not the best window manager.
tbh i found it better to just enable X11 forwarding and open an xfce4 terminal.
(but afaik that has security issues. which didn't matter much in my use case, since everything was on my home network)
@ashfurrow but in an ideal world we wouldn't need tmux
@ashfurrow I struggle to remember how to name a session, so I usually resort to "history | grep tmux" :)
