1. Start tmux
2. Open a few panes and terminal applications
3. Type tmux detach. Alternatively, the shortcut.. Ctrl-B,d
4. Type tmux attach or simply tmux a to jump back in.
This is a more robust workflow than minimising / nohup / Ctrl-Z + fg etc.
This works in HPC clusters too logged in via SSH. Amazing isn't it?
@ashwinvis Oh yeah, I’ve been using tmux for running things on remote servers for years, it works great! It’s also helpful because it keeps running even when the connection drops or times out. The only difficulty is that it can be finicky when you’re doing SSH X forwarding, but I rarely do that, so it’s not an issue for me
