Layout Files

The layout files are kept very simple, yet. The following example file should suffice for documentation purporses:

{
  "title": "tmux-layout (Purescript)",
  "windows": [
    {
      "title": "Main",
      "layout": {
        "left": {
          "top": "psci",
          "bottom": "git status"
        },
        "right": "ls -al"
      }
    }
  ]
