Change ivy height to function of Emacs frame height #1722

Hi, thanks for your great work on this Emacs package.

I would like to set ivy-height to some variable that depends on my monitor situation. Since I use monitors in portrait configuration when my laptop is docked, I like to have ivy-height set to about 30 or 40. When I'm plugged into a landscape monitor or undocked, 30 is too much, I have been manually lowering ivy-height to about 15.

Any tips on how to set ivy-height to about 1/3 of Emacs frame height so that I don't have to manually fiddle with this variable?

Thanks, this config should work now:

(add-to-list 'ivy-height-alist
             (cons 'counsel-find-file
                   (lambda (_caller)
                     (/ (frame-height) 2))))

If you want it for all callers, use t as key:

(setq ivy-height-alist
         lambda (_caller)
         (/ (frame-height) 2))))

Let me know if it works as expected.
