Using this patch, you can use node -y next to achieve the same:
Which WM should I use ?

my personal favourite is bspwm and sxhkd, together it's super satisfying for some reason.
BSPWM not responding to anything and leaving my computer on a black screen.

when that's done it's time to copy the example configuration files to the above made folders. Now, I don't know where they are installed on your system, but you can find them in bspwm's github
Can Herbstluftwm handle reparenting windows natively?
1 project | reddit.com/r/herbstluftwm | 18 Dec 2021
It seems all tiling window managers doesn't support reparent window. I have tried i3wm and bspwm, they all don't support eaf. https://github.com/baskerville/bspwm/issues/1347
Is bspwm still in active development? There is no activity from developer's side for almost 6 months on GitHub....

River is a dynamic wayland compositor that takes inspiration from dwm and bspwm.

Bspwm provide examples for both, bspwmrc and for sxhkdrc.
Looking for more CLI and less GUI based Distro

Try i3 or sway or bspwm, you can install them and switch to them from your session manager, you don't have to uninstall anything, and you can come back to regular Ubuntu anytime ;)

There are many programs that have separate toolkits or popups. Steam, Dia and Android Studio comes to mind. Steam worked correctly in almost all instances though, if I remember right. Not that Firefox About-page isn't that big of a deal, but many login pages (which get really out of place when force-tiled) and addons have popups. Quick deal breaker for me was Android Emulator, which apparently can be fixed now. I might give bspwm another shot seeing that solution.
How X Window Managers Work, and How to Write One
14 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 3 Nov 2021
This is a great article and I remember reading it numerous times while I was implementing my own window manager.
For someone interested in working on a really fun and rewarding hobby project a WM is a great one to look into since there are so many resources starting from really small implementations:
Which are great at introducing the concepts and allowing you to grok the required libraries.
There are also a bunch of more full featured window managers which will introduce you to more advanced topics:
Gradually as you get more familiar with the ecosystem a few questions will come up:
Should I use X11 or XCB? - I personally used XCB and didn't find it too difficult to interface with, and there are a large number of implementations which use it (2bwm, bspwm, ratpoison, etc) so you shouldn't have an issue with learning more about it. But the documentation is pretty limited. If you are just wanting to write a toy WM than X11 is perfectly fine.
X or Wayland? - If you're wanting to write your first WM as a hobby project than I would recommend X over wayland just due to the much larger amount of reference material and documentation. You will have a much easier time getting your feet wet. Ignore the comments about X dying as it doesn't really matter for a hobby project, since the whole point is to have fun.
Feel free to check out my window manager which is an example of what just reading this blog post and getting inspired can result in: https://github.com/cfrank/natwm
