tmux fzf session jumper

edit ✏️

Quickly getting between tmux splits is critical skill for productivity. You can get by with next or prev session for awhile, but if you have more than about three session you need something a bit more targeted.

Full Screen selector

I have used this fzf one keybinding for quite awhile, honestly I did not make it up, and cannot remember where it came from. It will open up a session picker in a new full screen window.

bind C-j new-window -n "session-switcher" "tmux list-sessions | sed -E 's/:.*$//' | grep -v \"^$(tmux display-message -p '#S')\$\" | fzf --reverse | xargs tmux switch-client -t"

Like with many of my keybindings I have swapped this one out for a popup version. It just feels so smooth.

bind C-j display-popup -E "tmux list-sessions | sed -E 's/:.*$//' | grep -v \"^$(tmux display-message -p '#S')\$\" | fzf --reverse | xargs tmux switch-client -t"
