No need for tmux, but....


Recommended Posts

Greetin's all....  I'm using i3wm so I really don't need to be using something like tmux to create multi terminals on a single screen, but the other day I decided to use it again.  I have a raspi as a music player using mp3blaster that I access using ssh from the lappy or pc.  Occasionally I need to adjust the volume so what I had been doing was open another terminal, ssh to the raspi and bring up alsamixer.  I could have just left it there, move it where I wanted or resize it etc, occasionally I did... Yeah, I know....why would I need tmux?  Well, cuz it sorta looks cool and I can kinda feel the tmux power.  Hope y'all have a nice weekend....sunny and breezy here in S.E. Virginia.

That is pretty impressive but so so yesterday. Why not have a peep at Terminology ?




There are loads of colour theme packs for it as it is the default for the Bohdi distro.




For a graphical peek at the colour schemes look here,


Color schemes for Terminology - Current theme count: 203


I had a play around with it a couple of years  ago and was impressed and am intending to play again this winter when I have more time .




Terminology has matured over the years and this is a more recent article on it.





Terminology has a lot of features. From its website, at least Terminology has more than 20 features.

The features are:

  • Most escapes supported by xterm, rxvt etc. Work
  • Xterm 256 color escapes work
  • Backgrounds (bitmap, scalable/vector, animated gif, videos)
  • Transparency
  • Bitmap and scalable fonts supported
  • Themes for the layout and design
  • URL, file path and email address detection and link-handling
  • Inline display of link content
  • Multiple copy and paste selections and buffer support
  • Works in X11
  • Works in Wayland
  • Works directly in the linux framebuffer (fbcon)
  • Can be finger/touch controlledScan scale by UI scaling factors
  • Can render using OpenGL or OpenGL-ES2 (not a requirement - just an option)
  • Can display inlined media content (images, video, documents)
  • Can do multiple "tabs"
  • Can do splitting into multiple panes
  • Block text selection
  • Drag and drop of text selections and links
  • Can stream media from URLs
  • Tab switcher has live thumbnail content
  • Single process, multiple windows/terminals support
  • Fast (gives urxvt a run for its money)
  • Themable visual bell
  • Compress backscroll
  • Text reflow on resize
  • More...

I prefer screen over tmux but both are very useful. Of course I treat them differently with tabs instead of splits:



yeah, but mine looks wayyy cool
