Terminal multiplexer focued on simplicity, compatibility and stability

mtm is the Micro Terminal Multiplexer, a terminal multiplexer.

It has four major features/princples

  • Simplicity there are three commands change focus, split, close. There are no modes, no dozens of commands, no crazy feature list.
  • Compatibility mtm emulates a classic ANSI text terminal. That means it should work out of the box on essentially all terminfo/termcap-based systems even pretty old ones, without needing to install a new termcap entry.
  • Size mtm is small. The entire project is around 1000 lines of code.
  • Stability mtm is “finished” as it is now. You don’t need to worry about it changing on you unexpectedly. The only changes that can happen at this point are
    • Bug fixes.
    • Translation improvements.
    • Accessibility improvements.
    • Fixes to keep it working on modern OSes.
