Minimalist X11 window manager, neat. πŸ‘Œ

This project is a heavy work in progress!

I've been bouncing around between different window managers and decided that none of them exactly suited my tastes. The basic ideas behind tidy are:

  • While I do things, I want them to take up as much screen space as possible.
  • I want to reach things related to system settings in one place.
  • I want easy and intuitive tiling across multiple monitors.
  • Rounded borders.

The window manager will be as minimal as possible, just supporting fullscreen mode and a very simple tiled mode. Configuration will probably never be external, since I'm recompiling it all the time anyways and rust macros make it very easy to provide a nice API for configuration.

In addition to that, there will be several small applications (probably using GTK) that will offer a sort of "Control center" which shows remaining charge, wifi connections, the time, and so on, while you hold down a configured key; as well as a taskbar that will only appear in fullscreen mode.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
