vim-tmux-clipboard

Things get messy when I need to copy lines of text from vim into tmux's clipboard, especially when multiple split-windows are opened. So I created this super simple plugin, which provides seamless integration for vim and tmux's clipboard.

vim-tmux-clipboard automatically copy yanked text into tmux's clipboard, and copy tmux's clipboard content into vim's quote(") register, known as the unnamed register. It also makes multiple vim processes on top of the same tmux session act like they're sharing the same clipboard.

Requirements

  • add set -g focus-events on to your tmux.conf.
  • vim-tmux-focus-events for vim users.
  • neovim is recommended. Because vim does not support TextYankPost event, which is required for It also makes multiple vim processes on top of the same tmux session act like they're sharing the same clipboard.
