  • Double Borders Usability
    2 projects | | 26 Jul 2022
    Hi, I finally got around to setting up double borders after ≈1.5 years on bspwm today but I’d like input on usability from anyöne here who’s done the same. I started by using this script but ran into many issues so modified this one instead as it’s newer.
  • How to script nodes/subnodes alignment/sizing/positioning via shell-script?
    3 projects | | 28 Aug 2021
    bspc just sends null sep'd strings to bspwm via a socket - which you can reimplement how you'd like if needed. you can potentially make bindings for any language if you had reason to. or just exec bspc. do check out babashka - there is one lispy hacker who comes around here once in a while and has shared some cool bspwm stuff using it.
