xmonad-contrib-0.11: Third party extensions for xmonad

Safe HaskellNone




Allows you to run internal xmonad commands (X () actions) using a dmenu menu in addition to key bindings. Requires dmenu and the Dmenu XMonad.Actions module.



You can use this module with the following in your ~/.xmonad/xmonad.hs:

    import XMonad.Actions.Commands

Then add a keybinding to the runCommand action:

    , ((modm .|. controlMask, xK_y), commands >>= runCommand)

and define the list of commands you want to use:

    commands :: X [(String, X ())]
    commands = defaultCommands

Whatever key you bound to will now cause a popup menu of internal xmonad commands to appear. You can change the commands by changing the contents of the list returned by commands. (If you like it enough, you may even want to get rid of many of your other key bindings!)

For detailed instructions on editing your key bindings, see XMonad.Doc.Extending.

commandMap :: [(String, X ())] -> Map String (X ())Source

Create a Map from Strings to xmonad actions from a list of pairs.

runCommand :: [(String, X ())] -> X ()Source

Given a list of command/action pairs, prompt the user to choose a command and return the corresponding action.

runCommand' :: String -> X ()Source

Given the name of a command from defaultCommands, return the corresponding action (or the null action if the command is not found).

workspaceCommands :: X [(String, X ())]Source

Generate a list of commands to switch to/send windows to workspaces.

screenCommands :: [(String, X ())]Source

Generate a list of commands dealing with multiple screens.

defaultCommands :: X [(String, X ())]Source

A nice pre-defined list of commands.
