Scrotwm is a small dynamic tiling window manager for X11. It tries to stay out of the way so that valuable screen real estate can be used for much more important stuff. It has sane defaults and does not require one to learn a language to do any configuration. It was written by hackers for hackers and it strives to be small, compact and fast.<br /><br />It was largely inspired by xmonad and dwm. Both are fine products but suffer from things like: crazy-unportable-language-syndrome, silly defaults, asymmetrical window layout, "how hard can it be?" and good old NIH. Nevertheless dwm was a phenomenal resource and many good ideas and code was borrowed from it. On the other hand xmonad has great defaults, key bindings and xinerama support but is crippled by not being written in C.<br /><br />Scrotwm is a beautiful pearl! For it too, was created by grinding irritation. Nothing is a bigger waste of time than moving windows around until they are the right size-ish or having just about any relevant key combination being eaten for some task one never needs. The path of agony is too long to quote and in classical OpenBSD fashion (put up, or hack up) a brand new window manager was whooped up to serve no other purpose than to obey its masters. It was written by Marco Peereboom, Ryan Thomas McBride & Darrin Chandler and it is released under the ISC license. Patches can be accepted provided they are ISC licensed as well.<br /><br />Major features:<br />- Dynamic xrandr & xinerama support (multi screen)<br />- Navigation anywhere on all screens with either the keyboard or mouse<br />- Customizable status bar<br />- Human readable configuration file<br />- Screenshots<br />- Restartable without losing state<br />- Quick launch menu<br />- Many screen layouts possible with a few simple key strokes<br />- Windows can be added or removed from master area<br />- Windows can be moved to any workspace or within a region<br />- Resizable master area<br />- Move/resize floating windows<br />- drag-to-float<br />- User definable regions<br />- User definable modkey & key bindings<br />- User definable quirk bindings<br />- User definable key bindings to launch applications<br />- Multi OS support (*BSD, Linux, OSX, Windows/cygwin)<br />To-do:<br />- add switch between 2 windows (like alt-tab)<br />- add search for window function<br />- add identify window function<br />- switch scrotwm from Xlib to XCB<br />- make a floating stack mechanism
