clojurewm

Sick and tired of having no suitable window manager while working in Microsoft Windows.

Inspired by xmonad, scrotwm, dwm, windawesome, Actual Window Manager, python-windows-tiler, bug.n.

Built with clojure-clr, and ClojureClrEx for logging, pinvoke, and type building.

Motivation

There is no suitable way to easily organize and recall large numbers of windows while working on Microsoft Windows. Alt-Tab fails, and moving a hand to the mouse interrupts flow. Support for virtual desktops in Windows is bad as well, especially for multiple monitors.

What is really needed is a way to easily tag and recall windows on demand, free from any concepts of virtual desktops, monitors or window layouts.

Intent

clojurewm will:

  • provide an easy way to tag windows with any hotkey combination at runtime.
  • immediately focus a tagged window whenever this hotkey is entered.
  • not require a configuration file to set window tags.
  • not hide any windows (e.g. virtual desktops).
  • not tile any windows (use http://winsplit-revolution.com/home).

Usage

Terms

window : any opened window
hotkey : a key combination (e.g. Alt-1, Alt-Shift-T)
tag : a hotkey to which a window or windows are assigned.

Commands

Tag window

Alt-Shift-T
Assign a hotkey tag to the currently focused window. The next key sequence entered will used. Entering the hotkey again will recall all windows tagged with that hotkey.

Fullscreen window

Alt-Shift-F
Fullscreen the current window, hiding and borders and title bar. Still in alpha, doesn't work propertly for all applications, and behaves oddly on multiple monitors.

Next Window

Alt-J
Switch to the next window in the currently active tag.

Previous Window

Alt-K
Switch to the previous window in the currently active tag.

Activate Tag

[user defined]
Activate tag and recall (bring to foreground) all windows with this tag.

Quit

Alt-Shift-Q
Quit clojurewm.
