Two layouts: one is a variant of the Grid layout that allows the desired aspect ratio of windows to be specified. The other is like Tall but places a grid with fixed number of rows and columns in the master area and uses an aspect-ratio-specified layout for the slaves.
This module can be used as follows:
Then add something like this to your layouts:
for a 16:10 aspect ratio grid, or
SplitGrid L 2 3 (2/3) (16/10) (5/100)
for a layout with a 2x3 master grid that uses 2/3 of the screen, and a 16:10 aspect ratio slave grid to its right. The last parameter is again the percentage by which the split between master and slave area changes in response to Expand/Shrink messages.
To be able to change the geometry of the master grid, add something like this to your keybindings:
((modm .|. shiftMask, xK_equal), sendMessage $ IncMasterCols 1), ((modm .|. shiftMask, xK_minus), sendMessage $ IncMasterCols (-1)), ((modm .|. controlMask, xK_equal), sendMessage $ IncMasterRows 1), ((modm .|. controlMask, xK_minus), sendMessage $ IncMasterRows (-1))
The geometry change message understood by the master grid
Change the number of master rows
Change the number of master columns
Grid layout. The parameter is the desired x:y aspect ratio of windows
TallGrid layout. Parameters are
- number of master rows - number of master columns - portion of screen used for master grid - x:y aspect ratio of slave windows - increment for resize messages
This exists mostly because it was introduced in an earlier version. It's a fairly thin wrapper around SplitGrid L.
SplitGrid layout. Parameters are
- side where the master is - number of master rows - number of master columns - portion of screen used for master grid - x:y aspect ratio of slave windows - increment for resize messages
