til/organize panes in tmux
Organizing our windows is great, but what about our panes? If you're like me, you like having them in a certain order. Here's how to easily rearrange them to get them just right.
Ctrl + b (
<C-b>), tmux's default command prefix, followed by
} to swap the pane with the next one. Alternatively, use
<C-b>:swap-pane -D. To swap the pane with the previous one, press
<C-b>q to show pane numbers and then move a pane to a specific number. To move the current pane to pane 3, type
<C-b>:swap-pane -t 3. To move pane 2 to pane 3, type
<C-b>:swap-pane -s 2 -t 3.
If you want to switch a pane but keep the current as active, use
<C-b>:swap-pane -U -d.
Bonus: If you wish to get fancy, use
swapp, an alias for
- rename windows in tmux
