[Solved] Place tmux configuration in a different folder

ajr-dev Asks: Place tmux configuration in a different folder
I have my tmux configuration in "$DOTFILES"/tmux/tmux.conf and I’d like to know if this is a correct way of using that configuration without copying or symlinking it to the $HOME directory.

In my .zshenv I have:

export TMUX_DIR="$DOTFILES"/tmux
export TMUX="$TMUX_DIR"/tmux.conf

In my .zshrc I have:

alias tmux=tmux -f "$TMUX"
