LIMIT CLIENTS PER TAG PATCH

Last update: 2007-10-25

See nmaster for cpt on dwm-4.6.

This patch allows you to limit the number of clients to be shown. This restriction only affects non-floating windows.

This patch can be used as a 'set' or 'toggle' mode.

Tips

  • To show all windows put "-1" as argument value.
  • To only display floating windows put "0" as argument.
  • For a toggling pair put "^2".

Configuration

The MODKEY+w toggles between two visible tiled windows and MODKEY+SHIFT+w hides all tiled windows.

    { MODKEY|ShiftMask,             XK_q,           clientspertag,  "0" }, \
    { MODKEY,                       XK_q,           clientspertag,  "^1" }, \
    { MODKEY,                       XK_w,           clientspertag,  "^2" }, \
    { MODKEY,                       XK_e,           clientspertag,  "^3" }, \

See nmaster for dwm-4.6.

Here's a patch from Ritesh Kumar that modifies dwm.c to show cpt and total number of clients in the statusbar.

TODO

  • Maybe it should be renamed to "tiledlimit" or "clientslimit".
  • Think about a way to make the focused client always visible (enhaced monocle patch?)

Feedback is welcome :)
