I used to run DWM, it was a blast. But holy balls is modifying it in almost any respect a chore, you wouldn't want to be busy if you want to do much more than just remapping bindings.

yeah... editing a plain text config file is much easier than editing the source code and recompiling.

Also from i3wm.com :

The usual elitism amongst minimal window managers: Don’t be bloated, don’t be fancy (simple borders are the most decoration we want to have).
However, we do not enforce unnecessary limits such as a maximum amount of source lines of code. If it needs to be a bit bigger, it will be.

In fairness, their config.h is about as readable as one could possibly make it. Patching in features, on the other hand, massive pain in the balls, especially if the patch set is old and merging patches becomes problematic.

I was just reading up on it. Apparently the config.h only has a couple dozen lines. So not as bad as I had imagined. Still, easier to quickly edit the /i3/config and then hit mod shift r.

Absolutely. And when it comes to extending its functionality, DWM isn't even in the ballpark, or county, or state, really, maybe it's sitting in some crater on the far side of the moon. i3's documentation is way way way better, too.

I had a chance to play a bit with i3.

It's different. Unfortunately they won't support "alt-tab." I expect that will be a deal-breaker. "4 directional keys" is not a suitable replacement. And after Fluxbox and FVWM, relying on external scripts isn't worth the trade-off.

Separately from that, I tried using Alt as the Mod key. That seemed to "interfere" with traditional uses for the Alt key. I changed Mod to the Win key, but that's awkward. Alt-tab is automatic.

4 directional keys is superior in every way.

I agree, but it is a matter of preference.

I absolutely adore i3. It feels a bit weird when I update my wife's Linux Mint machine (running some variation of gnome, and everything is in Japanese). I should probably just set up SSH on her machine and update it that way.

Feels like having to resort to using a mouse since it requires too much task shifting. Part of the problem is competing interfaces. The default directional keys seem odd to me. And I'm already familiar with vi bindings, which means I'd have to learn a new set for i3.

But I haven't spent much time with it yet, so maybe I'll find something that works for me.

You think 20 extra minutes of compiling means I sit there and look at a non-comprehensible screen for 20 minutes.

Modern computers are nice. I can run an emerge -e world and keep working on other work spaces. Nothing really slows down. Quite the difference from when I was running Gentoo on a 1ghz Duron.

I remembering formatting a disquette (or what's the word). Nothing slowed down for me. A Linux experience, and I compared it to Win95 and my Amiga 2k. I felt the similarities to the Amiga. No loss, just pure multitasking working as it should.

OK, so fonts.

I've got the status bar and the dmenu configured. And even the title bar of the terminal (i3-sensible-terminal), but not the font inside the terminal.

Unfortunately fonts within apps seem to be their own layer of hell. Still really missing Alt-Tab.

I use urxvt (rxvt-unicode), I have extra fonts in ~/.fonts. As for alt-tab, the Wiki might have you covered.

Here are my configs :

.config/i3/config


Code:
# This file has been auto-generated by i3-config-wizard(1).
# It will not be overwritten, so edit it as you like.
#
# Should you change your keyboard layout some time, delete
# this file and re-run i3-config-wizard(1).
#

# i3 config file (v4)
#
# Please see https://i3wm.org/docs/userguide.html for a complete reference!

set $mod Mod4

# Font for window titles. Will also be used by the bar unless a different font
# is used in the bar {} block below.
font pango:System San Francisco Display 13

# This font is widely installed, provides lots of unicode glyphs, right-to-left
# text rendering and scalability on retina/hidpi displays (thanks to pango).
#font pango:DejaVu Sans Mono 8

# Before i3 v4.8, we used to recommend this one as the default:
# font -misc-fixed-medium-r-normal--13-120-75-75-C-70-iso10646-1
# The font above is very space-efficient, that is, it looks good, sharp and
# clear in small sizes. However, its unicode glyph coverage is limited, the old
# X core fonts rendering does not support right-to-left and this being a bitmap
# font, it doesn’t scale on retina/hidpi displays.

Also, ranger is amazing.

.config/ranger/rc.conf
Code:
# Use one of the supported image preview protocols
set preview_images true

# Set the preview image method. Supported methods:
#
# * w3m (default):
#   Preview images in full color with the external command "w3mimgpreview"?
#   This requires the console web browser "w3m" and a supported terminal.
#   It has been successfully tested with "xterm" and "urxvt" without tmux.
#
# * iterm2:
#   Preview images in full color using iTerm2 image previews
#   (http://iterm2.com/images.html). This requires using iTerm2 compiled
#   with image preview support.
#
# * urxvt:
#   Preview images in full color using urxvt image backgrounds. This
#   requires using urxvt compiled with pixbuf support.
#
# * urxvt-full:
#   The same as urxvt but utilizing not only the preview pane but the
#   whole terminal window.
set preview_images_method urxvt

Thanks, I'll keep kicking it. What I had working didn't resume after exiting.

As I've been saying for about the past decade, Xdefaults has been deprecated for over a decade (so, for like 20 years now). You should be using Xresources. It's not just a different name for it; Xresources is loaded into a DB you can dynamically change settings while it's running. Rtfm, low-lifes.

Like that bmc:quirk.db I've seen in the wild?

i3 + tmux makes a nice combo, easy to set up quickly in most distros. i3 is my preference for multi-monitor, but with a single screen & gentoo dwm is solid.

Portage is suckless friendly out of the box with savedconfig use and automagic for patches, my dwm & st build times are ~5-15s on an old i3.

dwm/i3+dmenu+st+tmux+ranger has been my goto for a few years now.
