random hacks and pointless shenanigans

fmux - A tmux configuration for people who still have F-keys

It’s been a while1 since I’ve written anything here. Let’s get started with a little post about a project I’ve been using for a while.

fmux is a tmux configuration file that shamelessly rips off what I consider to be byobu’s most important and useful features, but without as much overhead. I’m currently maintaining a version for tmux versions 3.0 or greater, as well as a version for tmux 2.9 that should also work on earlier versions, although it might occasionally complain about certain appearance settings. I might build a version for tmux 2.6 at some point, since it’s what’s provided on the current Ubuntu LTS.

You might not find this super useful if you’re using a 60% (or smaller!) keyboard, although I get by fine with judicious use of the Fn key.

Full details, as well as the current set of provided keybinds, at the GitHub repository.
