WMI is a new lightweight window manager for X11, which attempts to
combine the best features of LarsWM, Ion, evilwm and ratpoison into
one window manager.
window manager improved 2 - is the next generation of the WMI
project. Due to a complete rewrite it is highly modularized and
uses a new configuration and inter-process communication interface
which is oriented on the 9p protocol of the plan9 operating system.
It achieves following goals:
reduction of compile time
reduction of memory usage
reduction of lines of code
performance improvements
improved rendering capabilities (optional cairo)
improved configuration and IPC interface (libixp)
modularized components
wmi was a single binary. Due to the modularization wmii consists of
following binaries:
wmii (core window manager)
wmiinput (input mode)
wmibar (generic bar, also usable for basic menus)
wmipager (workspace pager)
wmir (next generation wmiremote)
wmirat (the rat - shortcut handler)
