To build Way Cooler, make sure init the submodules correctly:
git submodule update --init --recursive --remote
make build and then
make run (or simply
make to do both steps). This will build and run both halves of Way Cooler.
Way Cooler is under very active development right now. Currently, master is not usable for production. There are old versions of Way Cooler that do work, however:
- They use an old framework, wlc, and thus are very limited and buggy.
- Was not designed to emulate Awesome, but instead has i3 tiling and its own (very incomplete) Lua libraries.
There will be another release this year, v0.9.0. It will be the last release before 1.0. 1.0 is defined to be 100% compatible with AwesomeWM.
