Switched from screen to tmux. It took some adapting (after all these years!), but now I'm really happy with it. Also switched from native Terminal app to iTerm. The combination is sweet. (Especially after some custom key bindings.)

- What's the win for iTerm? Tmux is nice for when I'd rather work in a huge terminal than bother with X forwarding or vnc.Mar 20, 2014
- Ever since switching to Mavericks, Terminal would periodically beach-ball my mac, especially when switching to it from chrome. (I mean, that's my core development cycle: save, cmd-tab, reload browser, cmd-tab back to terminal to try again).
Additionally, it has very nice keyboard shortcut support (eg I mapped C-1 to C-B 1, etc which switches tmux screens nicely), supports xterm mouse commands (I can move the cursor in emacs with my mouse without X11 forwarding), and cmd-1, cmd-2, etc switch tabs just like chrome. In Terminal, they select different windows, but I always prefer tabs.
Mostly, though, I was annoyed at Terminal taking a couple gigs of ram and freezing up all the time. It's probably because of my long scrollback buffer, but it's still really annoying. :-)Mar 20, 2014
- Why not just build Emacs.app and use that? Homebrew's got it.Mar 20, 2014
- Well, of course I have emacs already on my laptop. :-) But in this case the files are on our dev machine, and I've always kept a screen open with an emacs, a shell where I do all my commits, a shell where I push production (it's all about the bash histories), etc. That way, whether at home or at the office, I have a dev setup all good to go.
still using emacs. Except for certain tasks where vim fits better.Mar 20, 2014
- Just run the shells in emacs and run emacs in daemon mode. No screen or tmux!Mar 20, 2014
