I want to detach a tmux session. Now I know the shortcut (^b d) but is there a way we can do this via shell command. I am writing an automation script where i need this.

    Skim through the tmux manual page; the "CLIENTS AND SESSIONS" section in particular.

Only this:

tmux detach

Use this link for references: https://linux.die.net/man/1/tmux


You can use git z tmux in ~/.zshrc. And use td.
