Introduction

Other tmux session managers require pages of documentation for basic use, and define windows using a complicated nesting of pane splits. Instead, tmuxomatic is so easy that anyone could use it after just one example. Yet tmuxomatic is more flexible and more powerful than other tmux session managers.

At the heart of tmuxomatic is the windowgram , a better way of arranging tmux windows. The windowgram is a rectangle comprised of alphanumeric characters (0-9, a-z, A-Z). Each character grouping identifies the name, position, size, and shape of a pane. It should take only one example to demonstrate the power and flexibility of the windowgram.

Learn by example

Compare this window from session_example , with its screenshot from tmuxomatic session_example :

Tmuxomatic: completely different tmux session manager

With tmuxomatic, you’ll never have to manually split, position, or size a pane again. And linking the panes to actions is so simple and logical that you probably won’t forget it. There are no extra file format rules to remember, and typically no command line arguments will be necessary.

For additional features, see the included example sessions. For a list of command line arguments, run tmuxomatic --help .

Flex

Windowgrams are a neat way of arranging workspaces. For simpler layouts, a windowgram can be typed up quickly. But if you need detail, you may find yourself doing a lot of ASCII art.

In tmuxomatic 2.x, flex was added to automate the construction and modification of the windowgram itself.

Flex is an object-oriented windowgram editor. It is visually expressive, naturally worded, logically ordered, minimal, and powerful. Its short command set may be combined to make any conceivable windowgram — likely more quickly and more easily than crafting by hand. Flex is intended for power users who desire detailed windowgrams without the tedium of manual entry.

Flex concepts

Before proceeding with the flex demonstration, take a moment to review key concepts used by the commands.

  • Pane : Single character pane identifier, represents one pane in a windowgram
  • Group : String of one or more panes, usually forming a complete rectangle without gaps
  • Edge : String of one or more panes that border one or more edges (imaginary line between panes)
  • Direction : Expresses movement, or specifies an edge: up, down, left, right, vertical, horizontal
  • Size : Either an absolute number of characters, or contextually as a percentage or a multiplier

In the demonstrations that follow, the flex shell is represented in short form by the flex> prompt. For a list of flex commands with example usage, type help from the shell at any time.

Flex demonstration #1 — Create a new windowgram

Let’s use flex to build a windowgram that would otherwise require repetitious typing and/or careful editing.

The following windowgram is what we’ll create in this demonstration. This windowgram is intended for managing cryptocurrency nodes, specifically bitcoin, litecoin, and namecoin. There are panes for a general use shell ( 1 ), a disk monitor ( z ); and for each currency: a title with keep-alive loop on top ( B , L , N ), and blockchain information on bottom ( b , l , n ).

1111111111111111111111111zzzzzzzzzzzz 1111111111111111111111111zzzzzzzzzzzz 1111111111111111111111111BBBBLLLLNNNN 1111111111111111111111111BBBBLLLLNNNN 1111111111111111111111111BBBBLLLLNNNN 1111111111111111111111111BBBBLLLLNNNN 1111111111111111111111111bbbbllllnnnn 1111111111111111111111111bbbbllllnnnn 1111111111111111111111111bbbbllllnnnn 1111111111111111111111111bbbbllllnnnn 

Begin by opening the flex shell on the session file session_flexample . Flex will create the session file for you if it does not already exist.

% tmuxomatic session_flexample --flex  flex> 

First use the new command to create a new window named wallets . By default, it will create a single pane window represented by the single character 1 .

flex> new wallets  1 

From here it takes only four flex commands to complete the envisioned windowgram.

Scale:

To make the window easier to work with, let’s scale this windowgram to 25 characters wide, by 10 characters high. Many flex parameters are flexible, instead of characters we could have used multipliers or percentages.

flex> scale 25x10  1111111111111111111111111 1111111111111111111111111 1111111111111111111111111 1111111111111111111111111 1111111111111111111111111 1111111111111111111111111 1111111111111111111111111 1111111111111111111111111 1111111111111111111111111 1111111111111111111111111 

Add:

Now let’s add a new pane on the right edge, and make it 50% of the size of the base windowgram (or 12 characters, if you prefer).

flex> add right 50%  1111111111111111111111111000000000000 1111111111111111111111111000000000000 1111111111111111111111111000000000000 1111111111111111111111111000000000000 1111111111111111111111111000000000000 1111111111111111111111111000000000000 1111111111111111111111111000000000000 1111111111111111111111111000000000000 1111111111111111111111111000000000000 1111111111111111111111111000000000000 

There are only two commands left to complete this, and two ways to do it. One way uses split and break , the other uses break and join . We’ll use break and join, because split is shown in the next demonstration.

Break:

So let’s break pane 0 into a grid, 3 panes wide by 5 panes high. For readability, we’ll make use of the optional parameter so that new panes to start at A .

flex> break 0 3x5 A  1111111111111111111111111AAAABBBBCCCC 1111111111111111111111111AAAABBBBCCCC 1111111111111111111111111DDDDEEEEFFFF 1111111111111111111111111DDDDEEEEFFFF 1111111111111111111111111GGGGHHHHIIII 1111111111111111111111111GGGGHHHHIIII 1111111111111111111111111JJJJKKKKLLLL 1111111111111111111111111JJJJKKKKLLLL 1111111111111111111111111MMMMNNNNOOOO 1111111111111111111111111MMMMNNNNOOOO 

Join:

Finally we complete the envisioned layout using just one join command. Each parameter represents a group of panes to be joined together. By default, the first pane in the group becomes the joined name. But we’ll be using the optional rename, by appending . followed by the new pane id.

flex> join ABC.z DG.B EH.L FI.N JM.b KN.l LO.n  1111111111111111111111111zzzzzzzzzzzz 1111111111111111111111111zzzzzzzzzzzz 1111111111111111111111111BBBBLLLLNNNN 1111111111111111111111111BBBBLLLLNNNN 1111111111111111111111111BBBBLLLLNNNN 1111111111111111111111111BBBBLLLLNNNN 1111111111111111111111111bbbbllllnnnn 1111111111111111111111111bbbbllllnnnn 1111111111111111111111111bbbbllllnnnn 1111111111111111111111111bbbbllllnnnn 

That’s it. Our windowgram is ready to use.

Either type done and flex will open this session file in tmux, or type exit and add some directions (run commands, home directories, and focus state) to the session file. For more information on directions, see the example session at the start of this readme.

Flex demonstration #2 — Extend the windowgram

For this demonstration, we modify the windowgram from the previous demonstration, using a different set of flex commands. The commands in this demonstration are described in summary form. For more information on these or any other flex commands, type help <command> at the flex prompt.

Notes on tmux

To use tmuxomatic, you don’t have to know everything about how to use tmux , but the knowledge is useful for customizing the tmux status bar , or changing the default key bindings . These are tmux user preferences, and typically placed in a personal .tmux.conf file.
