Navigating through workspaces

This module has functions to navigate through workspaces in a bidimensional manner. It allows the organization of workspaces in lines, and provides functions to move and shift windows in all four directions (left, up, right and down) possible in a surface.

This functionality was inspired by GNOME (finite) and KDE (infinite) keybindings for workspace navigation, and by XMonad.Actions.CycleWS for the idea of applying this approach to XMonad.

data Direction
= ToLeft
| ToUp
| ToRight
| ToDown
data Limits
= Finite
| Circular
| Linear
data Lines
= GConf
| Lines Int
planeKeys :: KeyMask -> Lines -> Limits -> Map (KeyMask, KeySym) (X ())
planeShift :: Lines -> Limits -> Direction -> X ()
planeMove :: Lines -> Limits -> Direction -> X ()

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

 import XMonad.Actions.Plane

 main = xmonad defaultConfig {keys = myKeys}

 myKeys conf = union (keys defaultConfig conf) $ myNewKeys conf

 myNewkeys (XConfig {modMask = modm}) = planeKeys modm (Lines 3) Finite

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

Data types
data Direction Source
Direction to go in the plane.
show/hide Instances
data Limits Source
Defines the behaviour when you're trying to move out of the limits.
FiniteIgnore the function call, and keep in the same workspace.
CircularGet on the other side, like in the Snake game.
LinearThe plan comes as a row, so it goes to the next or prev if the workspaces were numbered.
show/hide Instances
data Lines Source
The number of lines in which the workspaces will be arranged. It's possible to use a number of lines that is not a divisor of the number of workspaces, but the results are better when using a divisor. If it's not a divisor, the last line will have the remaining workspaces.
GConfUse gconftool-2 to find out the number of lines.
Lines IntSpecify the number of lines explicity.
Key bindings
planeKeys :: KeyMask -> Lines -> Limits -> Map (KeyMask, KeySym) (X ())Source
This is the way most people would like to use this module. It ataches the KeyMask passed as a parameter with xK_Left, xK_Up, xK_Right and xK_Down, associating it with planeMove to the corresponding Direction. It also associates these bindings with shiftMask to planeShift.
Navigating through workspaces
planeShift :: Lines -> Limits -> Direction -> X ()Source
Shift a window to the next workspace in Direction. Note that this will also move to the next workspace. It's a good idea to use the same Lines and Limits for all the bindings.
planeMove :: Lines -> Limits -> Direction -> X ()Source
Move to the next workspace in Direction.
