Get the most out of your command line with Byobu
and impress your friends with Hollywood and Wallstreet!
@DustinKirkland leads Product Management at Canonical for Ubuntu, from the Cloud to IoT commercial offerings. Dustin loves spending time with his wife, Kimberly, and his two daughters, Camille and Corinne. In his spare time, Dustin enjoys brewing beer and making wine.
And impress your friends with Hollywood and Wallstreet! Do you ever sneak a peak at someone else's terminal and wonder, "Whoa, how did they split their screen up like that?" Or, "What are all those cool status indicators?" Or simply, "I want to do more with my command line!" In this talk, we'll take a deep dive into Byobu -- Ubuntu's super friendly front end for Tmux. You'll learn how to launch multiple shell sessions, create new text-based windows, divide those windows into horizontal and vertical splits, resize and move those splits around, detach from your session and reattach. We'll look at the status indicators across the bottom of the screen, enable more, disable some, and even create our own custom indicator. By the end of this session, you'll be able to teach your friends a thing or two about the Ubuntu command line. We'll also pay tribute to my favorite artist, Piet Mondrian.
