Around 17:00 I started my talk about tmux. What is mean by terminal
multiplexer, how it is useful when we connect to remote server using
ssh. How instead of using multiple ssh connections to remote server, we
can use a single ssh connection and multiplex it using tmux.
I explained various functionalities of tmux. howto create new window in
tmux, how to split a window into different panes, howto do vertical
split, horizontal split and howto switch between different panes. Also
explained about 'tree mode' in tmux to see sessions, windows and panes.
Also explained 'clients list mode' to see all the clients connected to
Using MeeTTY (https://gitlab.com/mohan43u/meetty), I demonstrated above
said functionalities of tmux using a live instance of meetty I setup
previously (https://22.214.171.124:8000). MeeTTY is currently under
development, the project idea came after last month's ILUGC meet to
have Terminal and IRC based tool to do Training or Meeting instead of
using audio/video based webconfrencing tools.
We welcome feedback from participants who attended this meeting, like
how they feel about the IRC meeting, how it is compared to audio/video
