Tmux Plugin Manager
Installs and loads TMUX plugins.
Truth be told, there aren't too many TMUX plugins out there. People mostly just
copy code snippets from each others'
I hope TMUX plugin manager (TPM) inspires people to do better and more creative things with TMUX. See below for instructions how to create your own plugin.
$ git clone https://github.com/bruno-/tpm ~/.tmux/plugins/tpm
Put this at the bottom of your
.tmux.conf (backslashes at the end of the lines
# List of plugins # Supports `github_username/repo` or full git URLs set -g @tpm_plugins " \ bruno-/tpm \ bruno-/tmux_battery_osx \ # Examples: # github_username/plugin_name \ # firstname.lastname@example.org/user/plugin \ # email@example.com/user/plugin \ " # initializes TMUX plugin manager run-shell ~/.tmux/plugins/tpm/tpm.sh
Reload TMUX environment so TPM is sourced:
# type this in terminal $ tmux source-file ~/.tmux.conf
- add a new plugin to the
prefix + I(I as in Install) to fetch the plugin
You're good to go! The plugin was cloned to
~/.tmux/plugins/ dir and sourced.
TPM provides only 1 key binding:
prefix + I. Here's what it does:
- clones new plugins from github or any other git repo
- pulls updates for already installed plugins
- refreshes TMUX environment
After you press
prefix + I, everything should be up to date.
