Nvimux allows neovim to work as a tmux replacement.

It does so by mapping tmuxs keybindings to neovim, using its windows, buffers and terminals.

Nvimux is built on lua, meaning that you must use a somewhat recent version of neovim.

For the older version, based on viml, refer to the legacy branch. The legacy branch won't be maintained but will be kept for those who prefer it.

To configure nvimux, you can use both lua and viml to configure, though the first is much preferred.

A lua-based configuration for nvimux is as follows:

lua << EOF
-- Nvimux configuration
local nvimux = require('nvimux')
  config = {
    prefix = '<C-a>',
  bindings = {
    {{'n', 'v', 'i', 't'}, 's', nvimux.commands.horizontal_split},
    {{'n', 'v', 'i', 't'}, 'v', nvimux.commands.vertical_split},

In case you don't set configuration options, please do run the following for nvimux to work:

lua require('nvimux').setup{}
