repository for the fion window manager
THIS IS A WORK IN PROGRESS, IT IS NOT WORKING YET !
fion is a static tiling window manager inspired by ion.
Fion assigns a work area to each screen. Each work area manages one or many workspaces and will always display an active workspace at a given time. A workspace will always contain at least one tile filling it up entirely. Tiles may be split horizontally or vertically.
- detects and configures multiple screens
- assigns a workarea, default workspace and default tile to each screen
- as many workspaces as wanted on each screen
- as many tiles as wanted on each workspace
- keyboard shortcuts to create / destroy / switch between next and previous workspace
- keyboard shortcuts to split horizontally & vertically / destroy / switch between next and previous tile
- keyboard shortcut to run terminal
- notion of current workspace and current tile on each screen
- attaches X client to the proper place
- focus is given to a tile either through keyboard shortcuts or by moving cursor
- event loop implements a tick to update layout even in the lack of events
- tiles management is not finished: creating / splitting / iterating works fine but destroying breaks the layout
- framing inside tiles so that it is possible to iterate between X clients attached to the same tile
- splitting tiles halves the parent tile, support for resizing should be implemented
- a cross workspace tile should be implemented, similar to ion's alt-space tile
