XMonad.Layout.IM

Contents

Description

Layout modfier suitable for workspace with multi-windowed instant messenger (like Psi or Tkabber).

Synopsis

Usage

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

 import XMonad.Layout.IM
 import Data.Ratio ((%))

Then edit your layoutHook by adding IM modifier to layout which you prefer for managing your chat windows (Grid in this example, another useful choice to consider is Tabbed layout).

 myLayout = withIM (1%7) (ClassName "Tkabber") Grid ||| Full ||| etc..
 main = xmonad defaultConfig { layoutHook = myLayout }

Here 1%7 is the part of the screen which your roster will occupy, ClassName "Tkabber" tells xmonad which window is actually your roster.

For more detailed instructions on editing the layoutHook see:

XMonad.Doc.Extending

Hints

To launch IM layout automatically on your IM workspace use XMonad.Layout.PerWorkspace.

By default the roster window will appear on the left side. To place roster window on the right side, use reflectHoriz from XMonad.Layout.Reflect module.
