TMUX - WHAT DOES IT DO?
It lets you switch easily between several programs in one
terminal, detach them (they keep running in the background) and
reattach them to a different terminal. And do a lot more.
WHAT I USE IT FOR?
Connecting to lots of servers
Keeps work & 'play' separate
Faster feedback loop (recent)
CONNECTING TO LOTS OF SERVERS
If you have to connect to lots of servers or even worse lots of 'tin'
then tmux helps you out.
KEEP WORK & 'PLAY' SEPARATE
I am easily distracted. I work in full screen mode. Mostly inside
the terminal (depending on my mood).
I have found tmux so useful it helps me:
Keep track of my work
Helps me set up projects (with helper scripts).
Projects are kept in their own eco system
FASTER FEEDBACK LOOP
