i3ass - i3 assistance scripts
This is a collection of scripts I have made to assist the usage of the windowmanager known as i3wm.
If you are using Arch linux, you can install the i3ass package from AUR.
Or follow the instructions below to install from source:
(configure the installation destination in the Makefile, if needed)
$ git clone https://github.com/budlabs/i3ass.git $ cd i3ass # make install $ i3ass i3ass - version: 0.002 updated: 2018-10-18 by budRich script | version ------------------ i3viswiz | 0.006 i3get | 0.302 i3var | 0.006 i3fyra | 0.501 i3list | 0.006 i3flip | 0.013 i3Kornhe | 0.006 i3gw | 0.147 i3run | 0.011 bash [INSTALLED] gawk [INSTALLED] sed [INSTALLED] xdotool [INSTALLED]
All the scripts that will be installed are located in the
src directory of this repo, so you can also just add that
directory or the scripts to your $PATH.
There is no oneline way to describe what i3ass does. And some of the scripts are rather complex. The links in the table below, will take you to the wiki page for the script.
|i3flip||Tabswitching done right|
|i3fyra||An advanced, simple grid-based tiling layout|
|i3get||Boilerplate and template maker for bash scripts|
|i3gw||a ghost window wrapper for i3wm|
|i3Kornhe||move and resize windows gracefully|
|i3list||list information about the current i3 session.|
|i3menu||Adds more features to rofi when used in i3wm|
|i3run||Run, Raise or hide windows in i3wm|
|i3var||Set or get a i3 variable|
|i3viswiz||Professional window focus for i3wm|

fix: improved autopositioning (negative xoffset works), less delay when invoked by mouse.
removed: test notifications.
- fix: issue in resulting in wrong conid being returned.
fix: removed extra row in vertical menus.
fix: less twitchy moving of menu when invoked with mouse and off screen.
add: negative position argument for xpos and ypos
echo list | i3menu --xpos -10 --ypos -20 --width 200 --orientation vertical this will result in a menu displayed at a position calculated from the right and bottom edges of the screen. x=(screenwidth-(menuwidth+xpos)) y=(screenheight-(menuheight+ypos)) if you really want the menu to appear at a "real" negative coordinate (to the left of the left screen edge or above the top), use: --xoffset or --yoffset: echo list | i3menu \ --xpos -0 \ --ypos 0 \ --width 200 \ --orientation vertical \ --yoffset -20 \ --xoffset 30 this would place the "top right corner" of the menu, 20 pixels above the active screen and 30 pixels to the right of the active screen.
grand reorganization of i3ass. created a new GitHub organization: i3ass-dev. Where all the i3ass scripts have it's own repo. It's on these repos development will be done from now on. This (budlabs/i3ass), will be the repo where all issues should be reported host the wiki and the installable version of i3ass. I think this will be great.
This repo also contains two fixes to issues reported by APotOfSoup: i3get reported wrong info when criteria was con_id. and i3flip was not moving containers at all (the latter issue is only partially fixed, moving in containers that are not tabbed or stacked with i3flip is temporarily disabled)
more i3get fixes: there where some issues related to special characters in title of a window, and a bug that made all class searching and fetching not work. both fixed now.
i3-msg restart breaks i3fyra, try to use
i3-msg reload instead (it's faster and usually works just as good
