kwm

kwm (Knani’s Window Manager) is an Emacs-like window manager. It’s a fork of dwm.

Why another window manager

Because for me stumpWM is too much and ratpoison’s code is clusterfuck.

That’s why we need a suckless window manager.

This doesn’t have any useless feature, because efficient Emacs users only run Emacs (and a web browser).

**Note: this is not affiliated in any way with suckless it just adheres to the philosophy**

Work to be done

  • [ ] Add ability to do splits
  • [ ] Add ability to select windows using dmenu
  • [ ] Add a stack for history

How does it look like?

It’s a window manager it doesn’t look like anything. If you insist here is a scrot (not like the ones you see on r/unixporn )

How to use this?

I offer no binaries but installing shouldn’t be very hard on Linux

cd
git clone https://github.com/mohame-aziz/kwm.git
cd kwm
make
echo "exec $HOME/kwm/kwm" >> .xinitrc

startx

Read the config file to know the keybindings but most the time I just clone stumpWM.

There is a bug

Open an issue in the bug tracker or email me and it will get fixed.

I want feature X

I probably have no use for it so do it yourself.
