iTerm2 is an free terminal emulator for Mac OS X.
Here are some useful & interesting iTerm hotkeys i’ve discoverd along the way;
|All panes Input||
|split pane (h)||
|split pane (v)||
I have also set up some custom hotkeys for myself:
|⌘ ←||“HEX CODE”||
||Jump to beginning of the line|
|⌘ ➝||“HEX CODE”||
||Jump to end of the line|
|⌘ Backspace||“HEX CODE”||
||Delete current line|
|⌥ ←||“ESCAPE SEQ”||
||Jumo to beginning of the word|
|⌥ ➝||“ESCAPE SEQ”||
||Jumo to end of the word|
|⌥ Backspace||“HEX CODE”||
You can set up iterm to act like a “visor”, similar to how the Quake’s terminal / Guake works. This has an advantage of getting to your termals quickly among other things you’ve had opened on your screen.
First you will need to set up a hotkey, I’ve got mine to use
Then inside your terminal’s profile, set the style to something other than the default normal option.
I’ve also unchecked the default option for Confirm “Quit iTerm2” window.
I find this gets in the way everytime I shutdown my Mac, it pops up & I need to click it again to not let it stop the the shutdown process.
If you often find yourself spliting panes in your terminal window, I highly recommend setting up a Window Arrangement profile to save you time.
On my 15” macbook pro i set my a workspace which consist of 3 panes (shown below), Once your happy with your setup, you can save it by
Cmd + Shift + S.
I also set up a hotkey for mine to quickly bring up a new terminal window with the predefined panes.
You got any awsome tips I’ve not mentioned? Let us know from leaving a comment :)
