Description:

A dynamic tiling extension for KWin.

Kröhnkite is mainly inspired by dwm from suckless folks, and aims to be "simple" in both development and usage.


Features
------------
* DWM-like window tiling
- Dynamically tile windows, rather than manually placing each.
- Floating windows
* Multiple Layout Support
- Tiling layout
- Monocle layout
- Desktop-friendly layouts (Spread, Stair)
* Integrates well into KWin features, including:
- Activities
- Virtual desktops
- Window switcher
- Fullscreen (KWin can fullscreen any window)
- Minimization
Last changelog:

v0.5 Release 9 months ago

* feature: live-adjust layout while resizing window
* bugfix: fix Tile layout gap (#34)
* bugfix: consider screen gaps during layout adjustment calculation
* bugfix: layout adjustment freezes the window being resized
* internal: windows now have explicit state, and actions during state transition are explicitly defined.
* internal: window can be in "free tile" state, which allows layouts to float tiles without affecting other layouts.
* refactoring: split KWin-specific code from main logic

10 Wonderful, please, keep developing! For me, there are now two options and I am shifting towards the first: 1) KDE with Krohnkite, 2) No desktop manager and dwm. If all functionality is added, I do not see any reason to prefer 2) over 1) on a modern desktop. One can work effectively as in dwm and have the mainstream desktop manager kde as backup for testing, compatibility with new technologies and not so frequent tasks.

Much better than https://github.com/lingtjien/Grid-Tiling-Kwin
That would be nice to have a documentation less terse than the Github readme.

9 + Very good script and useful!

Although it would be nice to see the new windows form a golden ratio, not stack in rows. But that's just preference
