personal fork of the fast floating wm

read me

An mcwm fork.<br>
mcwm-beast is a minimalist window manager for the X Window System written directly on top of the X protocol C-language Binding, XCB. <br>
It is a traditional floating window manager with no fancy smarts like those in modern tiling window managers.<br>
In mcwm-beast all functions are available from the keyboard but a pointing device can be used for move, resize and raise/lower.<br>

You can check what mcwm already had here: <br>
The binary might not be as "small" as it used to be but it's still lightweight and memory consumption is diminished.<br>
When talking in size proportion, the bin is 28KB, when dwm bin is 33KB, dvtm 37KB,i3 343KB.

Notice that all those WM are really small and that size doesn't really matter in the end.
Still, I'll try to mess with it a little to make it smaller.

- Center, put the window to the center of the screen with mod+g (patched -- now center well with 2 monitors)
- chwfocus, focus a window when changing workspace
- hexcolors, use hex colors, like #004455
- maxoffsets, offset for fullscreen mode if using bar or bars
- menu, a patch to bind mod+p (in my configs mod+w) to dmenu or another application (comes with a nice example for 9menu).
- moveslow, move the windows slower better
- sendtoworkspace, send  a window to another workspace. will unmap from current workspace.
- Unkillable Window
- Fast Resize and keep aspect
- Patched the maxvert
- Patched the numlock issue
- Move the mouse with the keyboard (fast and slow)
- max horizontally with mod+shift+m
- max vertically and half horizontally - mod+shift+topright/mod+shift+topleft
- more color states
- double border can be enabled at compile time instead of the default 1 color border
  You can also draw a little square in the left corner corresponding to the window status
- Restart/Exit patch with mod+ctrl+r mod+ctrl+q
    (or whatever you set for the USERKEY_RAISE and USERKEY_DELETE respectivelly)
- You can now know the current workspace this way: xprop -root _NET_CURRENT_DESKTOP| sed -e 's/_NET_CURRENT_DESKTOP(CARDINAL) = //'
- keep approximately the same position when sending window to next screen
- Magnet borders
- Resize and move with the mouse from anywhere
- Modulo resize (can be enabled at compile time)
- Cursor change while moving/resizing
- Efficiency updated
- Events loop way more clean
- Easier configs
