Presentation of E-Tiling

I've branched e-tiling v0.5 on github.

What is it?

It's a tiling module for enlightenment.

I've done a quick video to introduce it:

Presentation of E-Tiling

On the video, you may have noticed that windows are added on the right (not on left as is wrongly written).

Features

  • tiling :)
  • swap windows
  • "Go To" feature
  • moving windows around
  • moving transitions to resize windows

As you may have seen, it's possible to add a column by moving a window on the right border of the screen.

Keybindings are currently set to use the home row of your keyboard as much as possible, hence a, s, d, …

Quick technical note

I use compositing in order to have transparency support for the animations. I also disabled shadows on popups.

TODO

It's not finished yet. Here's what I plan on adding:

  • choice whether to display window titles; currently it's hidden.
  • stack on rows or on columns
  • make sure it works fine on many screens since I haven't tested it
  • have different animations whether transparency is available
  • improve ICCCM support
  • choice on how to identify windows
  • remove bugs :)

Edit

There are still some bugs when reloading enligthenment or when changing configuration.

I hope to fix them soon. I will update this post when done.

Edit #2

Those bugs are now hopefully fixed.
