Emacs X Window Manager

EXWM (Emacs X Window Manager) is a full-featured tiling X window manager for Emacs built on top of XELB. It features:

  • Fully keyboard-driven operations
  • Hybrid layout modes (tiling & stacking)
  • Dynamic workspace support
  • ICCCM/EWMH compliance
  • (Optional) RandR (multi-monitor) support
  • (Optional) Built-in compositing manager
  • (Optional) Built-in system tray

Please check out the screenshots to get an overview of what EXWM is capable of, and the user guide for a detailed explanation of its usage.

Note: If you install EXWM from source, it's recommended to install XELB also from source (otherwise install both from GNU ELPA).
