This plugin contains configuration and tools to use tmux with VIM. It contains:

  • tmux.conf -- Good default tmux config
  • Vim cursors -- Cursor type distinguishes between Vim modes.
  • Vim autosave -- Automatically save all Vim buffers before any terminal command is executed.

Installation as a Vim Plugin:

If using Pathogen:

git submodule add git:// bundle/tmux-config
git submodule update --init

tmux.conf Installation

If you have installed this repo as a Vim plugin:

ln -s ~/.vim/bundle/tmux-config/tmux.conf ~/.tmux.conf

Otherwise symlink, copy the file, or copy its contents to ~/.tmux.conf


This adds Vim auto-saving support when running within tmux. When any command is run on the command line, be it ls or even just hitting ENTER, all Vim sessions running within this tmux session will be written.

Autosave Installation

To enable VIM autosaving, add the following to your .bash_profile, .bashrc, or .profile:

source ~/.vim/bundle/tmux-config/tmux-autowrite/
