One of the great things about tmux is that you can create flexible development layouts.
You can easily display the output of a command and auto update it using
watch. It has a similar end user experience as
tail -f, except for commands instead of files. For example:
$ watch git status
watch will run
git status every 2 seconds and display the output.
If you want color in your
git status, you’ll need to configure git to display color when being run by
$ git config --global color.status always
$ watch --color git status
