Tabby is a simple iTerm2 environment configuration tool. It allows you to create different environments for different projects, each with their own set of tabs and command sets.
Environments should be stored in
~/.tabby/, using a simple and short name. We'll walk through building my
Tabby environments are just regular Ruby classes. The filename and classname should match, with the classname following regular Ruby standards:
class Blog < Tabby::Base end
Define your project's root directory with
class Blog < Tabby::Base basedir "~/Dev/Blog" end
Creating tabs is just a matter of creating methods. There should be one method per tab. The method name becomes the tab's title; replacing underscores with spaces.
class Blog < Tabby::Base basedir "~/Dev/Blog" def jekyll exec "jekyll --auto --server" end def sass exec "sass --watch public/css/main.sass:public/css/main.css" end end
Each tab will start off by
cd'ing into the environment's
basedir. Then it will execute it's list of commands in order.
