A TMUX Devours A Bar

If you use TMUX, you want to read this post.

I’ve created three scripts. The first two will create a sidebar (or topbar) and run any arbitrary program in it. The third will create a new pane, zoom it, run the program, then disappear again when you’re done. It’s probably easier to show with a video:

If you’d like to see a larger version, you can on YouTube.

tmux_devour: Launch a process in a new pane, zoom the pane, kill the pane when done.
tmux_sidebar: Create a sidebar (e.g. for reading manpages) and kill when done.
tmux_topbar: Create a vertical split and kill when done.

I actually find them pretty useful as I do more and more stuff at the command line. Perhaps you will as well! You can find TDAB at GitHub, GitLab, or my own repository!
