Vim plugin for .tmux.conf.


When you edit .tmux.conf you get:

  • proper syntax highlighting
  • commentstring - so that plugins like vim-commentary work as intended
  • K - jumps to the *exact* place in man tmux where the word under cursor is explained (a helluva time saver). This should work correctly on practically anything in .tmux.conf.
  • :make - invokes tmux source .tmux.conf and places all the errors (if any) in quicklist
  • g! - executes lines as tmux commands. Works on visual selection or as a motion. g!! executes just the current line.


  • Vundle
    Plugin 'tmux-plugins/vim-tmux'

  • Pathogen
    git clone git:// ~/.vim/bundle/vim-tmux


  • Tiago Cunha - created first syntax highlighting script for .tmux.conf
  • Zaiste - wrapped syntax highlighting script in vim plugin
