Quick Start

Thanks to existing plugin managers for tmux, Nord tmux can be installed for all platforms in a uniform way within a few lines of codes. The recommended manager is tpm, but any other manager like tundle can also be used.

To automatically download and activate Nord tmux, follow the install instructions for tpm and

  1. add set -g @plugin "nordtheme/tmux" to your tmux.conf, by default .tmux.conf located in your home directory
  2. press the default key binding prefix + I to fetch- and install the plugin

See the Nord tmux's documentation for more installation options and how to set it up manually. Also see tpm's install instructions for more details.


Your terminal. Your style.
