Considering how much time I spend inside iterm2, it seems baffling that I have not created a notebook (this one) before to capture the all the learnings, and customizations to my life easier!

Different scenarios to consider:

  1. using iterm with default shell (in my case it is zsh)
  2. using tmux insdie iterm with the default shell
  3. using emacs inside tmux inside iterm
  4. copy-paste should should work with rest of the system
  5. iterm’s copy-mode works with vim like behaviour by default, which is probably ok.

Some references to read later:

  1. Tmux, copy-mode, and OSX shenanigans.
  2. Copy Mode - Documentation - iTerm2 - macOS Terminal Replacement
  3. Making the clipboard work between iTerm2, tmux, vim and OS X.
