Description : Window Manager Improved
WMI is a new, minimalistic window manager for X11, which combines the best
features of LarsWM, Ion, TrsWM, evilwm and ratpoison into one window manager.
WMI is highly customizable: it is designed with keyboard users in mind.
Each action (e.g. resizing the frame, creating a new workspace,
launching an app, note that WMI provides hundreds of actions) can be
bind to a shortcut. So say good-bye to the rodent :)
WMI is the vim among the window managers: its main user interaction is
oriented on the two modes of the famous vi editor - command mode and
normal mode. In WMI the command mode is called input mode and supports
the context-sensitive execution of actions. Outside this mode, only
actions which are bind to a shortcut can be invoked.
WMI is flexible: it is able to arrange multiple clients in one frame in
a maximized way, like Ion does, or to arrange them floating on a layer
of the workspace. The track behavior of larswm can be emulated through
using two or more frames in a neighbor arrangement.
WMI is simple to customize: there's no Lua bungling for customization
of the WMI, like Ion or TrsWM does. Only simple property files, which
are maintainable without the knowledge of yet another turing complete
