Any way to have a vertical i3bar ?
3 projects | reddit.com/r/i3wm | 5 Feb 2023
But the picture in this issue asserts that is possible. https://github.com/i3/i3/issues/11293 projects | reddit.com/r/i3wm | 5 Feb 2023
Years are passing by but i3 still lacks the vertical bars support. Here is a related bug report: https://github.com/i3/i3/issues/1129

So when i said "window manager based Linux" I was mostly referring to the stereotypes of the Linux window manager; which 1 person not even having a mouse; staring apps; moving windows doing everything with their keyboard. If you wanna look a bit more into window managers for windows the only "okay" one that I've personally used is bug.n and for Linux there's tons; but my personal fav is I3
i3mojo -- a Perl/Mojo-based i3 status bar command I wrote
2 projects | reddit.com/r/perl | 2 Feb 2023
This is basically a status bar content implementation that speaks the i3bar protocol, for the i3 window manager, and is designed to be used as a replacement for i3's own i3status. I've written plugins for things like: date/time, disk free space, pulseaudio volume, CPU usage, free RAM, weather, Bitcoin ticker, etc. I use Linux and OpenBSD regularly, so the plugins cover compatibility with at least those two. I've been using this as a daily driver since around 2017 as well, so it should be in pretty decent shape for general use, but of course, your mileage may vary.

I have noticed in one of your comments in this thread that you are looking for novel ideas of the UI look. As others commenters stated, you might be interested in tiling window managers like i3  or sway . They are truly a gem for productivity and sometimes for an eye .
However, I love the concept of scrollable window manager like PaperWM  is. When I had a smaller screen (24" 16:9) I was complaining a lot on unused space on my screen. With PaperWM I was finally happy with its dimensions, because I could have huge IDE on the left and small part of terminal displayed on the right. That way I knew if something was printed to terminal, while my editor took 80% of the screen.

I started off using i3wm a while back which made the migration to swaywm pretty seamless. Most of the migration/config was finding wayland-native alternatives for various utilities (screenshot, notification daemon, some applications) but there are lots of helpful blog posts (below).

i3 is probably the most well-documented and well-supported, and has a pretty simple configuration syntax.
Anyone here use tiling window managers?

Since Sway is a port of https://i3wm.org/ to Wayland, for enlightening I suggest you look for info on the latter.

> Dock to a different dock (hot-desking; same brand and size of monitor) and the entire display options need to be re-written - no option to preserve it
Does anything do this properly? I use i3, and wrote some super janky automation to preserve my layouts when I switched from dock to no dock and back. It has the concept of layouts that can be stored/loaded. So I had a script that would dump the layout, I had to manually run it before disconnecting (couldn't figure out how to detect the monitor disconnect and dump the layout before i3 re-arranged everything). And another script that would load the layout when new monitors were connected (this was easy enough).
I'd be _really_ impressed if something did this correctly without any user hacking.
