libwm

A small library for X window manipulation

Features

  • Depends on libxcb only
  • Wrappers for all window management operations
  • Built-in checks for off-screen operations

Usage

In order to use the library, you must first include its header file in your source file:

#include <wm.h>

To link your program against it, compile it as follows:

	cc pgm.c -lwm -lxcb -o pgm

Here is the list of all functions provided by libwm:

wm_init_xcb();
wm_kill_xcb();
wm_is_alive(wid);
wm_is_ignored(wid);
wm_is_listable(wid, mask);
wm_is_mapped(wid);
wm_add_atom(name, len);
wm_set_atom(wid, atom, type, len, data);
wm_get_atom(wid, atom, type, &len);
wm_get_atom_name(wid, atom, &len);
wm_get_screen();
wm_get_windows(wid, &list);
wm_get_focus();
wm_get_attribute(wid, attr);
wm_get_cursor(mode, wid, &x, &y);
wm_set_border(width, color, wid);
wm_set_focus(wid);
wm_set_cursor(x, y, mode);
wm_set_override(wid, mode);
wm_teleport(wid, w, h, x, y);
wm_move(wid, mode, x, y);
wm_remap(wid, mode);
wm_resize(wid, mode, w, h);
wm_restack(wid, mode);
wm_reg_event(wid, mask);
wm_get_monitors(wid, list);
wm_get_monitor(index);

Their usage is specified in the wm.h header file, as it is quite small for now.

Installation

Edit config.mk as needed, then build/install with the following commands:

make
make install

Require libxcb.
