Hi,

i don't quite understand why choose-list was deleted from tmux, could
someone please explain this? i found this feature very useful as it
allowed me to create menus without using external programs to do it.

For a program as mature as tmux is, i would like to suggest that the
devs don't remove features without thinking about their replacements -
people rely on these features once they're out.

kindly,
David

Hi

It did not fit either with the purpose of tmux itself or with the (less
fragmented, more consolidated) direction we have been taking choose
mode. I would like to see this taken further again and make
choose-tree/buffer/client less customizable but more powerful, which
will probably happen when I get more time...

Anyway, choose-list was removed more than a year ago and I'm afraid it
is not coming back. I'm told there are adequate tools out there already
to do the job.

Hi,

Thank you for your reply - i do appreciate it.

Since i do not know which direction these choose commands are going,
as a user the choose-list command still means a lot to people's
workflow - is that not so? I am sure there are projects on GH which
make use of this - having it within tmux at a small cost makes
scripting tmux nicer without needing to use external dependancies.

please do reconsider this point - it can't be hard to get this
functionality back in tmux can it? What doesnt it fit into with these
new choose commands you speak of?
