osxmonad

This is a library which allows XMonad to manage Mac OS X windows.

Status

  • Only attached hook is layoutHook
  • No Xinerama (multiple monitor support)
  • No borders
  • No focusFollowsMouse

Installation

We need XMonad's compilation step to include the -framework Cocoa flag to GHC. This repository includes a xmonad.patch (1 line diff) that you must apply to the XMonad source:

git clone git://github.com/pufuwozu/osxmonad.git
darcs get http://code.haskell.org/xmonad
cd xmonad
darcs apply ../osxmonad/xmonad.patch
cabal configure
cabal install
cd ../osxmonad
cabal configure
cabal install

Note: Mountain Lion users will have to download and install XQuartz.

Configuration

Create ~/.xmonad/xmonad.hs:

import XMonad
import OSXMonad.Core

main = osxmonad defaultConfig {
         modMask = mod1Mask .|. mod4Mask,
         keys = osxKeys
       }

Now we can run xmonad to have our windows managed.
