Setting up Tmux on the mac

Tmux is used to multiplex several consoles while you are logged in a linux box or on your mac terminal. It allows you to create split panes so you can see more stuff on the screen. You can check out the output of top on one pane, while you modify some code on another pane.

Panes are easy to create and moving across panes is real easy. See the thoughtbot link below on how to use Tmux.

Here are the links you need to set up tmux on your mac. Make sure you follow the  thoughtbot tutorial to customized your ~/.tmux.conf file. If you are coming from the "Screen" world, you'd like to set your prefix key to Ctrl A.
