I use tmux as a terminal with tabs. I usually have several windows opened.

enter image description here

The problem is it's hard to distinguish which window I'm current on. How to configure tmux so that I can distinguish the current window a bit better, rather than a '*' next to the window name.

I'm thinking about invert the bg/fg color for the current window.


OK I have figured out, the following snippet does the job:

set -g status-style 'bg=#000000,fg=#ffffff'
set -g window-status-current-style 'bg=#ffffff,fg=#000000'
set -g status-left ''
set -g status-right ''
set -g window-status-format "#I:#W"
set -g window-status-current-format "#I:#W"

This does something like below: enter image description here
