Install tmate.io and share your terminal session

This is an easy solution for sharing terminal sessions over ssh. Tmate.io is great terminal sharing app, you can think of it as Teamviewer for ssh.

To avoid compiling issues and dependencies, we will get the static build directly from GitHub to automagically use it.

wget https://github.com/tmate-io/tmate/releases/download/2.2.1/tmate-2.2.1-static-linux-amd64.tar.gz
tar -xvzf tmate-2.2.1-static-linux-amd64.tar.gz
sudo mv ./tmate-2.2.1-static-linux-amd64/tmate /usr/bin/
sudo chmod +x /usr/bin/tmate

And that is it, enjoy.

Open tmate and share the linkā€¦
