tmuxinator allows you to set up different profiles for tmux that automate the normally tedious task of launching a set of windows and panes in a specific arrangement. Very helpful for when I want to fire up a new dev environment.
The steps in the readme on github are pretty complete. The only gotcha I ran into with it was that on my current work machine (running Ubuntu 13.04 raring), I had to install
ruby-devbefore the tmuxinator gem would install.
I also installed tmux 1.8 from the
ppa:pi-rho/devppa, as tmuxinator recommends 1.8.
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:pi-rho/dev sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install tmux
After that, it was a simple:
sudo apt-get install ruby-dev sudo gem install tmuxinator tmuxinator new testproject
