Can anyone recommend a tmux session switcher? I’ve used https://github.com/siadat/session-finder in the past but it’s not very actively maintained and has gotten to be slower than a simple prefix-s up/down enter.
I keep meaning to check out tmux after first seeing @bphogan’s book featured in a PragProg newsletter a few years ago - I like the idea of others being able to share a session and help work on a problem.
I look forward to seeing suggestions too (I wonder if @bphogan has any?)
I’ve never invested in a session management tool for tmux. I use
prefix s a ton, but also
prefix ( and
prefix ) a lot too, as those cycle forward and backward.
Here’s what I end up using:
prefix s- display session switcher
prefix (previous session
prefix )next session
:switch -t [name]switch to specific session by name
I am aware that https://github.com/tmux-plugins/tmux-sessionist exists but I have not used it and it doesn’t look like it’s maintained currently.
Hmm, maybe I’ll try to make better use of
prefix ( and
prefix ). I don’t have quite as many sessions as I used to. Before I would often have 4 sessions that I would constantly jump between so previous and next wouldn’t be as useful.
For anyone interested in this I’ve settled on
Although to switch directly to a session you need to define a keybinding: https://github.com/sainnhe/tmux-fzf/issues/6#issuecomment-578750879
