Installation

$ pip install --user tmuxp

Load a tmux session

Load tmux sessions via json and YAML, tmuxinator and teamocil style.

session_name: 4-pane-split
windows:
- window_name: dev window
  layout: tiled
  shell_command_before:
    - cd ~/                    # run as a first command in all panes
  panes:
    - shell_command:           # pane no. 1
        - cd /var/log          # run multiple commands in this pane
        - ls -al | grep \.log
    - echo second pane         # pane no. 2
    - echo third pane          # pane no. 3
    - echo forth pane          # pane no. 4

Save as mysession.yaml, and load:

$ tmuxp load ./mysession.yaml

Projects with .tmuxp.yaml or .tmuxp.json load via directory:

$ tmuxp load path/to/my/project/

Load multiple at once (in bg, offer to attach last):

$ tmuxp load mysession ./another/project/

Name a session:

$ tmxup load -s session_name ./mysession.yaml

simple and very elaborate config examples

User-level configurations

tmuxp checks for configs in user directories:

  • $TMUXP_CONFIGDIR, if set
  • $XDG_CONFIG_HOME, usually $HOME/.config/tmuxp/
  • $HOME/.tmuxp/

Load your tmuxp config from anywhere by using the filename, assuming ~/.config/tmuxp/mysession.yaml (or .json):

$ tmuxp load mysession

See author’s tmuxp configs and the projects’ tmuxp.yaml.

Pre-load hook

Run custom startup scripts (such as installing project dependencies before loading tmux. See the bootstrap_env.py and before_script example

Load in detached state

You can also load sessions in the background by passing -d flag
