tmux-zoom / Zoom (Maximize) your panes - GNU/Linux

Hi everyone

Just wanted to share something I came across today. Those of you using tmux daily may or may not find this useful.

So I had for a long time bound this command for tmux to get a pane zoomed out (maximized):

bind C-z run "if [[ $(tmux list-window) =~ z00m ]]; then tmux last-window; tmux swap-pane -s z00m.0;tmux kill-window -t z00m; else tmux new-window -d -n z00m 'clear && echo TMUX ZOOM && read'; tmux swap-pane -s z00m.0; tmux select-window -t z00m;fi"

This worked more or less fine (you couldn't change window during the maximizing process, and you could only zoom out one pane at the time).
Thanks to gotbletu YouTube I came across tmux-zoom, which works way better than that oneliner...

Even zooming out more than one pane is working fine.

gotbletu is great isn't he? I've had 'figure out how to use tmux' on a to do list on my wall since April of last year. I suppose I should really give it a shot now that you've mentioned it. (it's crazy how I don't really look at my walls)
