script type
vmux leverages vim's server feature to have just one instance of vim running in your tmux session or even globally if you like.

vmux is a simple wrapper around vim/neovim/kakoune that will automatically start a server.  Subsequent calls of the wrapper script will open new files in the existing vim server.

Development happens here: https://github.com/jceb/vmux
install details

  make install DESTDIR=~/.local
  # make sure ~/.local/bin is in your PATH variable

Start tmux, run vim with the following command:

  vim.vmux FILE

Open a new pane in tmux and edit another file by running:
