XMonad.Layout.BoringWindows

Description

BoringWindows is an extension to allow windows to be marked boring

Synopsis

Usage

You can use this module with the following in your ~/.xmonad/xmonad.hs:

import XMonad.Layout.BoringWindows

Then edit your layoutHook by adding the layout modifier:

myLayout = boringWindows (Full ||| etc..)
main = xmonad def { layoutHook = myLayout }

Then to your keybindings, add:

, ((modm, xK_j), focusUp)
, ((modm, xK_k), focusDown)
, ((modm, xK_m), focusMaster)

For more detailed instructions on editing the layoutHook see:

XMonad.Doc.Extending

boringAuto :: (LayoutClass l a, Eq a) => l a -> ModifiedLayout BoringWindows l a Source #

Mark windows that are not given rectangles as boring

markBoringEverywhere :: X () Source #

Mark current focused window boring for all layouts. This is useful in combination with the CopyWindow module.

data UpdateBoring Source #

UpdateBoring is sent before attempting to view another boring window, so that layouts have a chance to mark boring windows.

Tips

variant of Full

An alternative to Full is XMonad.Layout.Simplest. Less windows are ignored by focusUp and focusDown. This may be helpful when you want windows to be uninteresting by some other layout modifier (ex. XMonad.Layout.Minimize)
