  • GitHub repo collision

    A window management module for AwesomeWM

    Project mention: AwesomeWM question. Snap to left/right? | | 2021-01-12
  • GitHub repo awesome-sharedtags

    Share and move tags on multiple screens when using the awesome window manager.

    Project mention: Awesome Single Tagset I3 Style | | 2020-12-21

    Everything i wanted was pretty easy to achieve with just some tweaks in the config file. But sharedtags is another option to get somewhat similar functionality. Thought about making this in to a module like that, but the only thing worth putting in its own file are the functions to move tags between screens. But felt it's easier for people to tweak the functionality when its right in the rc.lua file.

    Project mention: Website CSS Improvements | | 2021-04-11

    I just opened Let's see how much of this can be incorporated into the web page.

  • GitHub repo dotfiles

    Configuration files for various applications I use on a daily basis. (by potamides)

    Project mention: [OC] Confload - Create dotfiles-manageable weechat configs with password manager integration | | 2021-01-21

    I hope this is the right place to post this.. Personally I really like weechat, but since the configuration files are not meant to be edited by humans and contain sensitive information it is really hard to share my weechat rice in a dotfiles repository. That's why I created confload, a plugin which reads a configuration file with weechat commands. There exist similar solutions like inwee or autoconf, but confload provides more advanced functionality by making use of a macro processor, which makes it possible to use stuff like comments and well.. macros. Confload provides a special macro to obtain secrets like passwords from a password manager to eliminate any sensitive information from the config file. Since I created this for my needs, right now only KeepassXC is supported, but the script can be easily adapted for other password managers. Maybe someone else also has a usecase for this!

  • GitHub repo modalawesome

    Framework for modal, vi-like keybindings for the awesome window manager

    Project mention: is there a vimium c type extension or plugin that directly works with the window manager? | | 2021-04-08

    The closest thing I've seen is modalawesome. It doesn't provide the keybindings but it does provide the interface for defining vi-like key sequences.
