The short of it is -- I'm really damn impressed! It seems like a feature-filled terminal multiplexer, with an vibrant community, active developer base, and regular releases.
To get my feet wet this weekend, I started by duplicating many of Byobu's keybindings in my ~/.tmux.conf. I had to learn a bit about tmux to accomplish that (and even write one trivial patch against tmux to get it working better with gnome-terminal). You can find my Byobu-like ~/.tmux.conf here, which I've committed to the Byobu source tree and installing from the Byobu PPA packages in /usr/share/byobu/profiles/tmux. While I have most of the keybindings working, I have not ported over any of the byobu-status scripts yet. (I'm still thinking about the best way to go about doing that so that they could work with both screen and tmux.)
So I'm curious...
- Any Ubuntu/tmux users out there?
- Anyone interested in being able to use Byobu's goodness (keybindings, live status information) with tmux (in addition to screen)?
