splitting panes is a core feature of tmux. It allows us to split the terminal vertically or horizontally into new panes.

bind -n M-s split-window -c '#{pane_current_path}'
bind -n M-v split-window -h -c '#{pane_current_path}'
bind -n M-X kill-pane

🗒️ note that '#{pane_current_path}'will keep the split in the same directory as it's parent, without this it will default to your home directory.
