My AwesomeWM config

This is the reason I'm still not using Wayland. Too good to lose.


  • Just 4 permanent tags, no transient crap
  • Only 2 active layouts: Tile and Max (default)
  • Taglist hints client count by dots, dynamically updated
  • Remembers which tags were visible (on each screen) after WM restart
  • Handmade theme
    • Powerline-style wibar
    • Gruvbox colors (for now), different colors hinting the status of all widgets
    • Custom volume/brightness sliders & media notifications
    • Random wallpapers per screen, from given directory
  • Multi-monitor support
    • The X display set as "primary" has systray and 2 tags (term & chat) on it
    • Non-primary displays get the web & mail tags (replicated if more screens available)
    • Dynamic re-organisation of tags in case of screen addition/removal (so no clients get lost)
  • Keyboard oriented
    • Can resize, change tag, move, minimize, even suspend any client via shortcuts
    • Can toggle special "sticky" mode for client
      • Very useful to keep meetings on the corner & on top
      • Can be also toggled to "shy" mode, which makes it semi-transparent and actively escape from mouse
  • Useful widgets on wibar
    • Rotate screen toggle (if supported)
    • Touchscreen toggle (if supported)
    • Caps lock warning widget (hidden if caps locks is off)
    • Pressure information widget (Linux PSI)
    • Keyboard layout toggle
    • Interactive Spotify widget (when app is running)
