ZConvey integrates multiple Zsh sessions. They are given an ID, optionally a NAME (both unique), and can send commands to each other.
Use this to switch all your Zshells to given directory, via
zc-all cd $PWD! Also, there's
zc-bg-notify script (not a function), that will show notification under prompt of every active Zsh session. You can call this script from any program, Bash or GUI.
You can resize the video by pressing Ctrl-+ or Cmd-+.
The values being set are the defaults. They must be set before loading the plugin.
|zstyle ":plugin:zconvey" check_interval "2"||- How often to check if there are new commands (in seconds)|
|zstyle ":plugin:zconvey" expire_seconds "22"||- If shell is busy for 22 seconds, the received command will expire and not run|
|zstyle ":plugin:zconvey" greeting "logo"||- Display logo at Zsh start ("text" – display text, "none" – no greeting)|
|zstyle ":plugin:zconvey" ask "0"||zc won't ask for missing data ("1" has the same effect as always using -a option)|
|zstyle ":plugin:zconvey" ls_after_rename "0"||- Don't execute zc-ls after doing rename (with zc-rename or zc-take)|
|zstyle ":plugin:zconvey" use_zsystem_flock "1"||- Should use faster zsystem's flock when it's possible?|
|(default true on Zsh >= 5.3, will revert to mixed zsystem/flock on older Zshells)|
|zstyle ":plugin:zconvey" output_method "feeder"||- To put commands on command line, ZConvey can use small program "feeder". Or "zsh"|
|method, which currently doesn't automatically run the command – to use when e.g.|
|feeder doesn't build (unlikely) or when occurring any problems with it|
|zstyle ":plugin:zconvey" timestamp_from "datetime||- Use zsh/datetime module for obtaining timestamp. "date" – use date command (fork)|

The main command is
zc (yet it is rather rarely used, I'm always sending to all sessions with
zc-all). It is used to execute commands on other sessions.
zc-ls is the main tool to obtain overall information on sessions.
zc-take is a nice rename tool to quickly name a few sessions. Keyboard shortcut Ctrl-O Ctrl-I will show current session's ID and NAME
in form of an on-screen logo.
