Demo Gif

A Tmux plugin that is my way of doing neovim's term mode. Also useful when you want to open a tiny pane to quickly execute a program and then close it. The id of the pane is remembered even if you switch panes so you can close it from any pane in the current window.


prefix + C-m Open/Close the drawer

Installation with Tmux Plugin Manager (recommended)

Add plugin to the list of TPM plugins in .tmux.conf:

set -g @plugin 'thornycrackers/tmux-drawer'

Hit prefix + I to fetch the plugin and source it.

Manual Installation

Clone the repo:

$ git clone ~/clone/path

Add this line to the bottom of .tmux.conf:

run-shell ~/clone/path/tmux-drawer.tmux

Reload TMUX environment:

# type this in terminal
$ tmux source-file ~/.tmux.conf

You should be good to go!

You can’t perform that action at this time.
