    Well, I now use tmux and tmuxinator. I have had many failed tmux attempts over the years, but I'm firmly bedded in now.
  • Kera Desktop: open-source, cross-platform, web-based desktop environment

    I once bought a 32 core ThreadRipper and tried to get along with using a cheap £200 Windows 10 laptop to remote into the threadripper while in coffee shops and use the ThreadRipper to do my work.

    The £200 Windows 10 laptop wasn't powerful enough, it was too laggy. Even on Wifi.

    I love the idea of the X11 protocol. And I still love the idea of a web desktop. Something that is supremely well integrated and allows me to move workloads between client and server seamlessly. This idea I really like. The ability to outsource computation and storage seamlessly. A process can be moved between machines seamlessly.

    This could be modelled in Javascript and promises that can be sent around. Microservices in the desktop environment.

    I looked at tools that would bring up tmux sessions with everything preloaded. (

    ScrapScript has very good ideas in this area of distributing dependencies and storage. ( There is also val town.

    I never use KDE Plasma widgets or the sidebar widgets that Mac provided.

    There is so many exciting ideas that could be tried out but I worry they're all too big ideas to be implemented.

    I use for my workspaces. Doesn't save ad-hoc layouts, but usually I find one layout that works per project, then create a tmuxinator config for it, so after reboot, it's a short "tmuxinator start $my-project" away to get back to how I want it to be.

  • zoom only one side of the window?
    3 projects | /r/tmux | 4 Jul 2022
    I doubt that would be possible with tmux's built-in zoom functionality (if it is, I'm not aware). You can use tools such as tmuxinator to create cusotm layouts, but I think "zoom" in tmux means "cover the whole window"

    mprocs looks pretty cool. In the past I've used Tmuxinator or Tmuxp configs for stuff like that.
