XMonad.Layout.HintedTile

Contents

Description

A gapless tiled layout that attempts to obey window size hints, rather than simply ignoring them.

Synopsis

Usage

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

 import XMonad.Layout.HintedTile

Then edit your layoutHook by adding the HintedTile layout:

 myLayout = hintedTile Tall ||| hintedTile Wide ||| Full ||| etc..
   where
      hintedTile = HintedTile nmaster delta ratio TopLeft
      nmaster    = 1
      ratio      = 1/2
      delta      = 3/100
 main = xmonad defaultConfig { layoutHook = myLayout }

Because both Xmonad and Xmonad.Layout.HintedTile define Tall, you need to disambiguate Tall. If you are replacing the built-in Tall with HintedTile, change import Xmonad to import Xmonad hiding (Tall).

For more detailed instructions on editing the layoutHook see:
