First release of the Niri composite server using Wayland

Recommended Posts

The first release of the Niri composite server (https://github.com/YaLTeR/niri/releases/tag/v0.1.0) has been published (https://github.com/YaLTeR/niri). The project implements the tiling method, in which windows are grouped into an infinitely scrolling ribbon. Opening a new window causes the ribbon to expand, and previously added windows never change their size. The project code is written in Rust and is distributed under the GPLv3 license. Packages are built for Fedora, NixOS, Arch Linux, and FreeBSD.

The reason for creating a separate composite manager is the impossibility to realize separate work with monitors in PaperWM because of GNOME Shell peculiarities (binding to global window coordinates). The main difference between Niri and PaperWM is that each monitor has its own ribbon of windows, which do not overlap with each other. Niri supports HiDPI and can run on systems with multiple GPUs (e.g. hybrid systems with a discrete graphics card and an embedded GPU).
