A quick and dirty script to replace dmenu, an i3 app launcher, using fzf

Getting started

  1. Make sure you have fzf installed (https://github.com/junegunn/fzf).
  2. Clone this repo somewhere useful.
  3. Edit your i3 config (~/.config/i3/config?)

Add the following 2 lines:

bindsym $mod+space exec termite --class "fzf-menu" --geometry 640x480 -e /path/to/repo/fzf-menu
for_window [class="^fzf-menu$"] floating enable

The above config usees termite as the terminal emulator. You may be able to replace that with the terminal of your choice.

Be sure to replace /path/to/repo/fzf-menu with the path to the fzf-menu executable in this repo.

Now, you're good to go! Just press + to fire up the launcher!


This script was inspired by, and the config basically taken from http://theinfiniteset.net/2016/02/15/uniting-interfaces-dmenu-and-fzf/
