Tmux fpp

Plugin wrapper around Facebook PathPicker.

Quickly open any path on your terminal window in your $EDITOR of choice!


Demo tmux-fpp


  • fpp - Facebook PathPicker.

Key bindings

  • prefix + f - open a new window with a fpp selection of your current tmux pane.

Installation with Tmux Plugin Manager (recommended)

Add plugin to the list of TPM plugins in .tmux.conf:

set -g @plugin 'tmux-plugins/tmux-fpp'

Hit prefix + I to fetch the plugin and source it. You should now be able to use the plugin.

Manual Installation

Clone the repo:

$ git clone ~/clone/path

Add this line to the bottom of .tmux.conf:

run-shell ~/clone/path/fpp.tmux

Reload TMUX environment:

# type this in terminal
$ tmux source-file ~/.tmux.conf

You should now be able to use the plugin.


How can I change the default "f" key binding to something else? For example, key "x"?

Put set -g @fpp-key 'x' in tmux.conf.

How can I paste the selected file paths into my original pane, instead of launching an editor?

Put set -g @fpp-mode 'paste' in tmux.conf.

Alternatively you can bind both behaviours to different keys manually:

# Disable default binding
set -g @fpp-bind off

# Bind 'f' to run FPP launching an editor
bind-key f run-shell '~/.tmux/plugins/tmux-fpp start edit'

# Bind 'x' to run FPP and paste the list of files in the initial pane
bind-key x run-shell '~/.tmux/plugins/tmux-fpp start paste'

How can I specify custom path to fpp?

Put set -g @fpp-path '~/my/path/fpp' in tmux.conf.

Other goodies

tmux-fpp works great with:

  • tmux-urlview - a plugin for quickly opening any url on your terminal window
  • tmux-copycat - a plugin for regex searches in tmux and fast match selection
  • tmux-yank - enables copying highlighted text to system clipboard
