I’ve been using it for a few months now (and submittef a patch).
For the most part, it’s wonderful. Where it falls down just a little is where it’s limited by tmux. For instance, while you can search in the terminal from vim, tmux does not highlight the found text because vim is the selected window and not the terminal.
A big plus: it’s written using VIM Ruby hooks. And Ben Mills, the author, wrote a nice API of primitive functions for communicating with tmux.
If you use vim, use it. It will let you envy the emacs users a bit less.
Nice. Looks like compile-buffer on Emacs. ;)
The major driving force behind vimux was emacs envy!
Yes and? ;–)
