How to create IDE like experience in terminal using Zellij

(undocumented?) Zellij Keybindings

Undocumented, because these don’t show up in the default configuration, which shows (I assume) most useful key bindings. I had to look for these, and found them in Github discussions/issues.

There is also a possibility of running a floating pane. This may be used for running a server process, which mostly one doesn’t need to look at constantly.

It also save screen real estate.

You can start a floating pane via Ctrl p w

Since this a toggle, new floating pane will be created if one does not exist. If one already exists, it will be toggled between hidden and shown.

  1. Documented/default Ctrl p n creates a pane in vertical split fashion, to the right. ↩︎
