The Text Triumvirate (zsh, vim and tmux)

The Text Triumvirate (zsh, vim and tmux) | A better work | Scoop.it

The Triumviri


In 62 BC, Caesar united a political alliance between himself, the statesman Crassus, and the military general Pompey. Together, the three men formed a secret political faction called the Triumvirate that ruled the Roman Republic. The Text Triumvirate is an alliance between the zsh, vim, and tmux. Each of these venerable tools is extremely powerful in its own right; however, together they are an unmatched productivity force that rules all forms of text manipulation. This post aims to provide an overview of how to create a highly functional and easy to configure Text Triumvirate for those new to this tool chain. I try to focus on aspects of how to integrate zsh, vim, and tmux with particular focus on my experiences with two common problems—copy/paste functionality and color aesthetics.

Why Vim? | Terminally Incoherent

Why Vim? | Terminally Incoherent | A better work | Scoop.it
Vi and vim are just a bitch to learn to use properly. Unlike most ... Vim is basically a unix shell for text editing – it gives you hundreds of small commands that can be scripted together to achieve daunting feats in small amounts of time.

Make Notepad++ the Default TXT Editor

Make Notepad++ the Default TXT Editor | A better work | Scoop.it

One might think it would be enough to replace the copy of Notepad.exe by a renamed Notepad++.exe. This may still work under Win9x/Me.


More recent versions of Windows are more careful about their integrity, and they consider Notepad.exe to be part of it. As a result, they won't let you replace Notepad.exe easily.

GNU Screen is a UNIX tool that allows multiple console applications to be run, each in its own “window”, from the same terminal. In a single Screen session, you can run interactive shells, mail programs, SSH sessions, and other console based applications, and you can easily switch between these using hotkeys.
