Zooming with emacs, tmux or stumpwm

Hey ! You use stumpwm, emacs or tmux and your screen (not the GNU screen) split in lot of parts ? There is a solution to improve that. ZOOMING !

Each of them work with a screen divided into panes/windows (the meaning of theses words change between the program), sometime you want want to have the one where your work in fullscreen. An option exists in each of them to get fullscreen temporarly on a window.

Emacs: (not native)

This is not native in emacs, you will need to install zoom-window from your favorite repository.

Add the thoses lines in your ~/.emacs:

(require 'zoom-window)
(global-set-key (kbd "C-x C-z") 'zoom-window-zoom)

Type C-x C-z to zoom/unzoom your current frame


Toogle zoom (in or out)

C-b z


Add this to your ~/.stumpwmrc

(define-key *root-map* (kbd "z")            "fullscreen")

Using “prefix z” the current window will toggle fullscreen.
