The minimalist window manager.
This project was previously a work of satire, going under a different name, however I have decided to continue the project as it seems functional and ready to be improved upon. Click here if you're a little curious.
This window manager is single-file and small binary with low resource consumption. Personally, I find it's useful for focused work where you aren't moving around too much and don't need multiple workspaces (it doesn't support them, obviously).
- Push window backwards
- Pull window forward
- Kill window
- Open (Suckless) Simple Terminal (st)
- Open dmenu
- Kill window manager
- Move windows
- Resize windows
New key-binds are added by editing
aphelia.c and re-compiling. It's actually pretty self-explanatory as the code is quite repetetive. Couple copy-pastes, tops.
sudo make install
sudo make clean
sudo make reinstall

/r/unixporn is great but sometimes it can get overly-cutesy. This project was meant to have fun with that idea a bit.
