xmonad: A tiling window manager

[ bsd3, library, program, system ] [ Propose Tags ]

xmonad is a tiling window manager for X. Windows are arranged automatically to tile the screen without gaps or overlap, maximising screen use. All features of the window manager are accessible from the keyboard: a mouse is strictly optional. xmonad is written and extensible in Haskell. Custom layout algorithms, and other extensions, may be written by the user in config files. Layouts are applied dynamically, and different layouts may be used on each workspace. Xinerama is fully supported, allowing windows to be tiled on several screens.

xmonad

A tiling window manager for X11.

XMonad is a tiling window manager for X11. Windows are arranged automatically to tile the screen without gaps or overlap, maximising screen use. Window manager features are accessible from the keyboard: a mouse is optional. xmonad is written, configured and extensible in Haskell. Custom layout algorithms, key bindings and other extensions may be written by the user in config files. Layouts are applied dynamically, and different layouts may be used on each workspace. Xinerama is fully supported, allowing windows to be tiled on several physical screens.

This repository contains the xmonad package, a minimal, stable, yet extensible core. It is accompanied by xmonad-contrib, a library of hundreds of additional community-maintained tiling algorithms and extension modules. The two combined make for a powerful X11 window-manager with endless customization possibilities. They are, quite literally, libraries for creating your own window manager.
