After years on Linux, I just discovered Vim & TMUX. They're fucking amazing.

This page summarizes the projects mentioned and recommended in the original post on reddit.com/r/linux

Our great sponsors
  • Scout APM - Truly a developer’s best friend
  • Zigi - The context switching struggle is real
  • SonarLint - Clean code begins in your IDE with SonarLint
  • InfluxDB - Build time-series-based applications quickly and at scale.
  • dtache

    GNU Screen, tmux and dtach (with convenient Emacs interface) all serve to limit that problem.

  • nord-alacritty

    An arctic, north-bluish clean and elegant Alacritty color scheme.

    Alacritty Nord.

  • Scout APM

    Truly a developer’s best friend. Scout APM is great for developers who want to find and fix performance issues in their applications. With Scout, we'll take care of the bugs so you can focus on building great things 🚀.

  • vim-tig

    Do a tig in your vim

    Self plug vim-tig. Haven't updated it in a while but I use it daily. Mapped ctrl+g to open.

  • micro-editor

    A modern and intuitive terminal-based text editor

    Micro was honestly the closest terminal text editor that I liked. Everything is accessible via the terminal with keyboard shortcuts, mouse integration is fantastic for a terminal program, it's default settings are sane and most of all: its intuitive.

  • zellij

    A terminal workspace with batteries included

    u/rattlerake What do you think about zellij? I rarely use terminal multiplexers and never remember shortcuts, but zellij have them on screen. :P

  • GNU Emacs

    Mirror of GNU Emacs

    For those wondering, the Emacs equivalent would be to use TRAMP and Dtache.

  • vtm

    Terminal multiplexer with window manager and session sharing

    For absolute revelation, use vtm, a whole Desktop environment for the terminal. In addition to tiling (like tmux) it supports floating window management.

  • Zigi

    The context switching struggle is real. Zigi makes context switching a thing of the past. It monitors Jira and GitHub updates, pings you when PRs need approval and lets you take fast actions - all directly from Slack!

  • dtach

    A simple program that emulates the detach feature of screen

    GNU Screen, tmux and dtach (with convenient Emacs interface) all serve to limit that problem.

  • powerline

    Powerline is a statusline plugin for vim, and provides statuslines and prompts for several other applications, including zsh, bash, tmux, IPython, Awesome and Qtile.

    Wait until you discover that you can apply powerline to both of them
