I’ve been doing an experiment lately that requires reading and searching lots of logs in Tmux. Something that makes this harder is that we collect a deep history there. Sometimes I’ll ‘find’ a query I’ve been looking for 😀, only to realize it is hours or days old ️😐.
clear-history has been our solution. Running this command on an already cleared Tmux pane clears your history for that pane; you can’t scroll up or search the previous output.
We’re doing this enough that I put this alias in our terminal dotfiles.
alias tc='clear; tmux clear-history; clear'
tmux clear-history is the CLI version of the Tmux meta command
