XMonad.Actions.Launcher

Description

A set of prompts for XMonad

Synopsis

Description and use

This module exemplifies usage of mkXPromptWithModes. It includes two modes:

  • Hoogle mode: Search for functions using hoogle, choosing a function leads you to documentation in Haddock.
  • Calc: Uses the program calc to do calculations.

To test it, modify your local .xmonad:

import XMonad.Prompt(def)
import XMonad.Actions.Launcher
((modm .|. controlMask, xK_l), launcherPrompt def $ defaultLauncherModes launcherConfig)

A LauncherConfig contains settings for the default modes, modify them accordingly.

launcherConfig = LauncherConfig { pathToHoogle = "/home/YOU/.cabal/bin/hoogle" , browser = "firefox"}

Restart xmonad. Press Ctrl + Your_Modkey + L and the first prompt should pop up.

If you used the default XPConfig, you can change mode with xK_grave. If you are using your own XPConfig, define the value for changeModeKey.
