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.
