On the wemux readme, there is this image:

wemux

That's a pretty cool status bar he has there. I can see how it's been done - there's a character that looks something like this:

\
##\
####\
######\
#######>
######/
####/
##/
/

However, I can't work out what it is. Any ideas?

Since it extends beyond the height of the other characters I'd guess it isn't a character glyph. Unicode has some triangular shapes but I doubt they are the source of what you are seeing. – RedGrittyBrick Apr 23 '12 at 15:59
    
@RedGrittyBrick It doesn't. There's a solid background behind the character, which makes it appear full height. Look closely - you can see the sharp corners where the character stops short of the background. – Eric Apr 23 '12 at 16:00
    
My eyesight isn't that good, maybe you can magnify a section of the image by about 10 :-) (see also edit to my prior comment) – RedGrittyBrick Apr 23 '12 at 16:02

Have a look at his .tmux.conf: https://github.com/zolrath/dotfiles/blob/master/tmux.conf

In particular at the status-* style options.

His theme is based on vim's powerline, with a special patched font, see: https://github.com/Lokaltog/vim-powerline.
