A tmux plugin that attempts to safely kill processes before exiting a tmux session. Works with TPM
In tmux, use the command:
The plugin will attempt to recursively end processes it knows about (right now: vim, man, less, bash, zsh, and ssh). It defaults to
Ctrl-C for processes it doesn't know about. Ultimately, the session should have exited on its own after all child processes are gone.
It is also possible to close only the panes in the current window:
Warning: this is kind of a big hammer. If you have any sensitive processes, make sure they are dealt with before running this :-)
