How to Tmux

So maybe you like to do your work on an external VPS, maybe (may the people around you have mercy on you) you think working over a vagrant ssh is "the shit" or maybe you are just looking for a solution that integrates better with window & session management and your need to customize things. Well then this is for you!

Say you need to open a terminal session to run a rails/phoenix server, another terminal session to execute rspec/espec and a last one to open VIM and execute generator commands. Opening 3 terminals aint that hard, but managing 3 ssh-sessions can be a pain!

Below all the configuration to get started with a basic tmux setup + some basic tips. Tmux is a multiplexer. meaning you can have multiple windows, tabs and shell sessions open while only ssh-ing once to a machine. You're basically just rocking a window manager (like your interactive session on osx, explorer on windows or gnome on linux...) but then one that is designed for CLI's!
