Tmux #9

merged 5 commits into from

wm commented

Add's some tmux customization

  • Adds some more bindings for tmux
  • adds tmuxinator config
  • sets TMPDIR to /tmp (screw you Mac OSX security measures)


I wonder if pull requests for dotfiles should come from branches instead of forks? (To make it easier to switch to the branch? -- which is somewhat problematic for dotfiles.)

wm commented

Yes, I will push branches to Iora from now on.
