personal fork of the fast floating wm

read me


A fast floating WM, with the particularity of having 2 borders, written over the XCB library and derived from mcwm written by Michael Cardell.<br>
In 2bWM everything is accessible from the keyboard but a pointing device can be used for move, resize and raise/lower.<br>
WARNING: This WM and this repository are experimental, 2bwm is only meant for advance users. <br>

You can check what mcwm already had here: <br>

When talking in size proportion, 2bwm binary is 28KB, when dwm bin is 33KB, dvtm 37KB, and i3 343KB.

Notice that all those WM are really small and that size doesn't really matter in the end.

(Someone should write something about the features here)
//Panel that works with 2bwm: fbpanel, tint2, xfce4-panel, lxpanel, hpanel, cairo-dock
tweaks you need for 2bwm on OpenBSD: add /usr/X11R6/include to search path, install gcc-4.7, use CC=egcc make
Added snapping from the latest mcwm push.
The problem with https://github.com/u-ra/bar got solved by z3bra. Here's the solution:
sed -i 's/RELEASE/PRESS/;s/release/press' bar.c
Also, the clickable part works fine with the bar from lemonboy so you'd rather use this one instead or u-ra one.

* Rewrite the readme file
	with more statistic, 
	specifying all the features, 
	adding new scrots,
	link to other documentation,
	why should someone care,etc..

* Toggable sticky workspace per monitor

* Extended Window Manager Hints (EWMH)

  - Use the new xcb-ewmh for the EWMH hints.

* configs in a text file, parsed, and updated at restart (done in the devel branch)

* A separate workspace list for every monitor. (CTRL+NUM)
	* get the cursor position (on which monitor)
	* unmap all window that are only on this monitor
	* map window on the workspace NUM that are on this monitor
	* problem with curws and remapping
	* curws could be associated with the focuswin instead

* Check why the input focus doesn't work well with applications such as macopix

* Code cleaning
  - Use bitfields instead of extra lists for workspaces?
