XMonad.Layout.ComboP

Contents

Description

A layout that combines multiple layouts and allows to specify where to put new windows.

Synopsis

Usage

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

 import XMonad.Layout.ComboP

and add something like

 combineTwoP (TwoPane 0.03 0.5) (tabbed shrinkText defaultTConf) (tabbed shrinkText defaultTConf) (ClassName "Firefox")

to your layouts. This way all windows with class = "Firefox" will always go to the left pane, all others - to the right.

For more detailed instructions on editing the layoutHook see:

XMonad.Doc.Extending

combineTwoP is a simple layout combinator based on combineTwo from Combo, with addition of a Property which tells where to put new windows. Windows mathing the property will go into the first part, all others will go into the second part. It supports Move messages as combineTwo does, but it also introduces SwapWindow message which sends focused window to the other part. It is required because Move commands don't work when one of the parts is empty. To use it, import "XMonad.Layout.WindowNavigation", and add the following key bindings (or something similar):

    , ((modm .|. controlMask .|. shiftMask, xK_Right), sendMessage $ Move R)
    , ((modm .|. controlMask .|. shiftMask, xK_Left ), sendMessage $ Move L)
    , ((modm .|. controlMask .|. shiftMask, xK_Up   ), sendMessage $ Move U)
    , ((modm .|. controlMask .|. shiftMask, xK_Down ), sendMessage $ Move D)
    , ((modm .|. controlMask .|. shiftMask, xK_s    ), sendMessage $ SwapWindow)

For detailed instruction on editing the key binding see XMonad.Doc.Extending.

(Read l, Read a, Read (l1 a), Read (l2 a)) => Read (CombineTwoP l l1 l2 a)

data SwapWindow Source

Constructors

SwapWindow

Swap window between panes

SwapWindowN Int

Swap window between panes in the N-th nested ComboP. SwapWindowN 0 equals to SwapWindow

data Property Source

Most of the property constructors are quite self-explaining.
