Announcing mert, an iTerm 3 compatible tab & pane manager

– 06/05/16

One of the key pieces of my development workflow is using iTerm with each of my project’s commands running in its own pane. Some of my projects require 5+ commands - think vagrant up, ember build --watch, redis-server, rails s, etc.

Who has time to remember all this, much less manually configure iTerm with each of these commands
each time?

To that end, we’ve created a new tool, called mert, which
automates iTerm pane management. I previously used
termrc, but it was brittle and imcompatible with iTerm 3.
mert is built in node and uses Javascript for Automation (jxa) at its core.
