One-shot and permanent ManageHooks that can be updated at runtime.



Provides two new kinds of ManageHooks that can be defined at runtime.

  • One-shot ManageHooks that are deleted after they execute.
  • Permanent ManageHooks (unless you want to destroy them)

Note that you will lose all dynamically defined ManageHooks when you mod+q! If you want them to last, you should create them as normal in your xmonad.hs.

To use this module, add dynamicMasterHook to your manageHook:

 xmonad { manageHook = myManageHook <+> dynamicMasterHook }

You can then use the supplied functions in your keybindings:

 ((modMask,xK_a), oneShotHook (className =? "example") doFloat)

dynamicMasterHook :: ManageHookSource

Master ManageHook that must be in your xmonad.hs ManageHook.

addDynamicHook :: ManageHook -> X ()Source

Appends the given ManageHook to the permanent dynamic ManageHook.

updateDynamicHook :: (ManageHook -> ManageHook) -> X ()Source

Modifies the permanent ManageHook with an arbitrary function.

oneShotHook :: Query Bool -> ManageHook -> X ()Source

Creates a one-shot ManageHook. Note that you have to specify the two parts of the ManageHook separately. Where you would usually write:

 className =? "example" --> doFloat

you must call oneShotHook as

 oneShotHook dynHooksRef (className =? "example) doFloat
