Another question, I have a rule to open applications on certain tags but is it possible to also switch to that tag at the same time?

So I really like your idea and I just coded it :-)

For the moment, it's only in my git branch but feel free to try it or you can apply the diff :

@litemotiv : no, you can't remove border. Even with border=0, you will have a 1px border.

I've opened a ticket for this with a link to an i3 commit that implements this, hopefully you guys can cook up a similar solution for WMFS: http://wmfs.info/issues/75

Normally, borderless just needs an implementation of MWM hints in order for clients to disable that. wink

Oops forgot to add, *and* Subtle ofcourse. tongue

So WMFS should implement it, or it would be like the only kid in the neighbourhood without a BMX bike, and that would be sad.

@NYFinest : using conky and an uggly sed script for coloring the output, and Alm already answered for the rest, thanks to him.

Why don't you put the hex-codes straight into your conky script?

Because I want to keep the conky output human-readable, and to change color of some conky output, and idk how to do this inside conky (if_match perhaps, but a sed script is much more easy)

I'm doing something like this at the moment:

TEXT
\\#ffffff\ Hello \\#999999\

Not sure if that is readable enough for you though..

Re: The WMFS Thread (Window Manager From Scratch)

@erus, I replaced my original snap file with yours. I guess my question was, how do i input these special characters.

EDIT: One way to do it is to copy characters from gucharmap

Re: The WMFS Thread (Window Manager From Scratch)

@Erus_Iluvatar, what did you use to edit the snap font? I was using your snapmod but wanted to add more icons. smile

And also, is there a way to show the current mpd song in the WMFS bar? I was thinking of using Conky and mpd_smart but is there a way to do it without Conky?

Re: The WMFS Thread (Window Manager From Scratch)

gbdfed to edit fonts, and use a bash status script with :

if [ "`mpc 2>&1 | wc -l`" -gt "1" ]; then
    if [ "`mpc | grep "^\[paused\]"`" != "" ]; then
        mpd_current="`mpc current` [paused]"
    else
        mpd_current=`mpc current`
    fi
else
    mpd_current="N/A"
fi

wmfs -s $mpd_current

Re: The WMFS Thread (Window Manager From Scratch)

This is stunningly embarrassing, but I must be doing something very fundamentally wrong.

I can't get any changes to take. I've edited the menu, tried to change the terminal opened under "keys" to either terminal or sakura. Restarting WMFS, the default behavior is still there.

Re: The WMFS Thread (Window Manager From Scratch)

That happens when the syntax of the configuration have an error. It switch to the default.
You'll have to check your configuration.

Re: The WMFS Thread (Window Manager From Scratch)

I've been using WMFS for two weeks now and I'm really loving it. It approaches my ideal of minimalism combined with powerful yet simple configuration options far better than any other tiling WM I've tried so far.


That said...

anonymous_user wrote:

Another question, I have a rule to open applications on certain tags but is it possible to also switch to that tag at the same time?

Is it possible to control if new windows open as the master or slave?

...these two points are important missing features, I believe.

Since, the first is apparently being worked on (the main branch will be updated any time soon?), I'll elaborate a bit on the second feature request, but formulated in a slightly different way:


If you have an application opened in the master area requiring lots of screen space (such as a browser or an IDE), then no doubt you'll want it to stay in that master area (until you close it or move it to a different tag). For example, if said large application spawns a small non-floating window, surely it's not very useful if the latter window takes over the master area and forces the application into a corner of the tile stack -- obviously, this is what currently happens.

To prevent this I propose a boolean option named something like "master" or "always_master" for [rule] segments of the wmfsrc config file. This of course means that both existing windows in that tag and windows spawned in that tag while the master app is running all become slaves.


In general, the more powerful the [rule] segments become, the more I'll love WMFS! big_smile

EDIT: I've opened a feature request about this here: http://wmfs.info/issues/84
