Powerline on Archlinux I recently switched from GNU Screen to Tmux. While reviewing random tmux.confs on Github I stumbled onto the screenshot below of tmux & powerline. Powerline is a statusline plugin for vim, and provides statuslines and prompts for several other applications, including zsh, bash, tmux, IPython, Awesome and Qtile. https://github.com/gpakosz/.tmux An AUR package available for Powerline. However for this document I am going to detail the standard installation.
