    A tiling window manager for Windows 🍉

    I have just pushed a couple of mixed horizontal and columnar layouts to the master branch which you can compile from source or grab compiled binaries for here.

  • leftwm

    A tiling window manager for Adventurers

    Right now there are only a fixed number of layouts because there is a bunch of stuff that needs to be implemented for navigating in different layouts, but in general it should not be too difficult to port any of the layouts used by LeftWM, especially now that there is the optional to make some layouts navigable via cycling only. Please do open an issue for more ultrawide-friendly layouts as I imagine that this is an issue that is stopping other ultrawide users from making the jump to using a TWM like komorebi.

  • WSL

    Issues found on WSL

    I think what I'm looking for is something in this direction: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/wsl/tutorials/gui-apps , or https://github.com/Microsoft/WSL/issues/637

  • win3wm

    A Tiling Window Manager for windows 10, Inspired by i3wm

    Have you looked into methods of hotkeying or auto-removing windows titlebars once a window belongs to a container (maybe they can auto-restore if a window is floated/unmanaged)? I know that workspacer and win3m have something like this.

NOTE: The number of mentions on this list indicates mentions on common posts plus user suggested alternatives. Hence, a higher number means a more popular project.
