Show HN: Muxile – a tmux plugin that puts your terminal on your mobile (github.com/bjesus)

Hello! I wrote this tmux plugin and wanted to tell all other tmux users about it, and if you aren't a tmux user maybe this will convince you :) often I run a command only to realize it will take some time before it completes. It could fail, and I might need to rerun it or adjust it. I don't want to be glued to my terminal for the next 10 minutes - so I wrote this little tmux plugin that lets me do `prefix+T`, and that's basically all. Tmux shows a QR code you scan with your phone - and then your terminal is on your mobile. No need to SSH etc - it really takes a moment. You can also use it to share your session with someone. Behind the scenes Muxile is using WebSocket to communicate with your phone, and all data is deleted the moment your computer disconnects from the session. I've also included the backend code in case you want to run your own. Enjoy!
