# Tmux Plugin Manager
[![Build Status](](
Installs and loads TMUX plugins.
### Installation
Requirements: `tmux` version 1.9 (or higher), `git`, `bash`.
Clone TPM:
$ git clone ~/.tmux/plugins/tpm
Put this at the bottom of `.tmux.conf`:
# List of plugins
set -g @plugin 'tmux-plugins/tpm'
set -g @plugin 'tmux-plugins/tmux-sensible'
# Other examples:
# set -g @plugin 'github_username/plugin_name'
# set -g @plugin ''
# set -g @plugin ''
# Initialize TMUX plugin manager (keep this line at the very bottom of tmux.conf)
run '~/.tmux/plugins/tpm/tpm'
Reload TMUX environment so TPM is sourced:
# type this in terminal
$ tmux source ~/.tmux.conf
That's it!
(**Note:** using `set -g @tpm_plugins` is deprecated, but still works alongside
new syntax)
### Installing plugins
1. add new plugin to `.tmux.conf` with `set -g @plugin '...'`
2. hit `prefix + I` (I as in **I**nstall) to fetch the plugin
You're good to go! The plugin was cloned to `~/.tmux/plugins/` dir and sourced.
### Uninstalling plugins
1. remove (or comment out) plugin from the list
2. hit `prefix + alt + u` (u as in **u**install) to remove the plugin
All the plugins are installed to `~/.tmux/plugins/` so alternatively you can
find plugin directory there and remove it.
### Key bindings
`prefix + I`
- installs new plugins from github or any other git repo
- refreshes TMUX environment
`prefix + U`
- updates plugin(s)
`prefix + alt + u`
- uninstall plugins that are not on the plugin list
