Today while hacking on Rails I stumbled upon the Tmux ‘list sessions’ command.
CTRL-Z s (where
CTRL-Z is your Tmux leader) opens a list of all your Tmux sessions, which you can navigate with normal Vim directions, or make your choice by typing in the desired index number.
When I’m having a good day programming, I’ll switch Tmux sessions a lot. My previous workflow was to exit a session with
cd to my next project,
mux (a Hashrocket Dotmatrix alias with levels) into a new or existing session with that directory name, then start hacking.
CTRL-Z s is much faster.
