i3

A Crystal interface to the i3 window manager, using i3's IPC protocol.

Installation

Add this to your application's shard.yml:

dependencies:
  i3:
    github: woodruffw/i3.cr

Usage

require "i3"

# create a connection object and manage it manually
con = I3::Connection.new
con.subscribe("workspace")
con.command("workspace 1")
con.close

# or, let `act` do it for you:
I3.act do |con|
  con.command("workspace 1")
  sleep(0.1)
  con.command("workspace 2")
end

TODO

  • Figure out a way to expose events as callbacks (lack of threads makes this difficult)
