Introduction to the i3 Window Manager

discord's picture

Presenting the i3 Window Manager. i3 is a tiling window manager aimed at power users. Its functionality is similar to wmii, with an emphasis on better code and documentation. From i3wm.org, its catchphrase is:    

Do What I Mean. Good Docs. Clean Code. Sounds good?  

In addition to presenting what the i3 developers want to showcase, I will demo the Window Manager, how I've set it up, what features I like,  and how I use it for my work flow.

I've spent about couple of months using the i3 window manager. By the time I deliver the talk, I'll be at the 3-4 month mark. I use it daily on both my laptop and my Desktop. I've gone further with it, having a look into it's source code, and working on its configuration. I've been in contact with its lead developer, and have his blessing on doing a talk. I participate on the mailing list and the irc channel.
