Hey @joshclayton, thanks for doing this Test Driven Rails Workshop. Really enjoying it so far. Quick question, how do you have your vim stuff setup? I really like seeing the shell at the bottom so I don’t have to do the Ctrl-Z, fg song and dance.
Hey @mmcfarling, I’m pretty sure that setup you see is Tmux with two windows. One smaller one below, running the shell, and the large one on top which is running Vim.
I know I can’t officially speak for @joshclayton, but hopefully I was able to help you out while you’re waiting for an official answer. Have a good one.
Thanks! I do have tmux installed. I just havent used it yet. I’ll watch the video and learn more.
Also take a look that installing their dotfiles to help with the set up GitHub - thoughtbot/dotfiles: A set of vim, zsh, git, and tmux configuration files.
I have tried to give tmux a spinn, but I got problems with opening MacVim in the terminal, and running my color scheme (Solarized Dark)
I would get the tmux book from Pragmatic bookshelf. That, in combination with thoughtbot-inspired dot files will get you there.
I had the same problem, you can force tmux to use a 256 color terminal by starting it like this: tmux -2
