    Project mention: Any plans on porting to wayland? | /r/awesomewm | 2023-07-10

    i'm reading this issue and this thread as i'm looking into migrate to wayland, since sooner or later we'll apparently have (i know this won't be very soon, but wayland is more and more mainstream). I know "any update on this?" is very annoying, and that's why i'm not open an issue, but... Any update on this?

  • stackline

    Visualize yabai window stacks on macOS. Works with yabai & hammerspoon.

    Project mention: Yabai – A tiling window manager for macOS | | 2023-11-30

    They may be referring to stackline

    I've used it in the past, it was very aesthetically pleasing but did not work consistently enough for me to use day to day.

  • smart-splits.nvim

    🧠 Smart, seamless, directional navigation and resizing of Neovim + terminal multiplexer splits. Supports tmux, Wezterm, and Kitty. Think about splits in terms of "up/down/left/right".

    Project mention: vim-tmux-navigator is awesome | /r/neovim | 2023-07-12

    for neovim it's probably worth pointing out smart-splits.nvim btw which has additional multiplexer support

  • PaperWM.spoon

    Tiled scrollable window manager for MacOS

    Project mention: Yabai – A tiling window manager for macOS | | 2023-11-30

    I use the PaperWM spoon, a port of the Gnome thing.

    It does not make sense to me to use a "normal" tilling vm that automatically messes up with window side without asking me, I just need the windows to be automatically put side by side.
