A wayland tiling window manager based on the swc library written in C++
It is still in heavy development, so please report bugs if you find any! :)
Special thanks to Michael Forney for his awesome work on swc, wld and velox. When i started writing zentwm i had no idea how wayland or compositors works, and i wouldn't have been able to code this without swc and wld as a base and velox as a reference.
The requirements is the latest git version of swc. After that, simply make the project. There's currently no make install in the Makefile however.
Simply run "swc-launch $PATH_TO_ZENTWM"
swc-launch -- valgrind ./zentwm
swc-launch -- gdb -batch -ex run ./zentwm
- Add support for hooks at specific events
- Replacing some pointer arguments to references for stability
- Make floating windows float above all tiling windows
- Properly implement WINDOW_BACKGROUND
Low priority ToDo
How do i change keyboard layout?
You change the keyboard layout with setxkbmap
How do i change keybindings?
It's currently only possible by modifying the config.cpp file and recompiling.
I know, a parsed configfile would be nice but it's boring work to code.
