I know this probably doesn’t fall into the “console application” category, but I’d be leaving out some great stuff if I didn’t include it.
I don’t use dvtm much, but I plan to more in the future. I may have to dig around in the code though, and customize it a little. The default keys are less than to my liking.
By the way, if you want it to behave like screen or tmux and allow detachment, dtach is your answer. More on that next.
