Introduced RubyWM, a window manager written entirely in Ruby

Recommended Posts

Published  the RubyWM project (https://github.com/vidarh/rubywm), developing a window manager based on the X11 protocol written in Ruby, including a driver for working with the X11 protocol. RubyWM supports virtual desktops and can use both mosaic (tailing) window layout and arbitrary positioning of windows on the desktop.

The window manager is marked as experimental, but is already used in the daily work of the author of the project. To control the window manager, X11 ClientMessage events are used, which can be generated by the xdotool utility. To handle keyboard combinations, sxhkd (https://github.com/baskerville/sxhkd) is used.
