tmux splitting panes

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
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

🗒️ 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.

Be sure to check out the full youtube playlist and subscribe if you like it.
