linux default iconSubtle Publisher's description

Another tiling window manager with a slightly different approach to place the windows.

Subtle application is a another tiling window manager with a slightly different approach to place the windows, in contrast to other tiling window managers like Wmii or Ion. The placement in subtle is done by tiling windows which arrange every child-window either in a horizontal or a vertical manner. Client or even tiling windows can be moved/dragged into a tile and will be arranged according to the tile type. Every window can be swapped too and shaded inside of it’s parent tile. (view)

This behaviour is mostly inspired by Wily, an emulation of ACME – the well-known Plan9 “editor”.

Configuration and theming is done with the help of Lua. Furthermore there is an extendable “statusbar” attached to the main tile. Sublets, small Lua scripts, provide features like a customizable clock or even a small progressbar for the battery capacity of a notebook.

The initial code was based on Aewm, but is meanwhile completely re-written.
Simplicty and flexibility are the goals of this project – besides not to be bloated of course. Controlling can be done either with the mouse or the keyboard – just as the user prefers.

What's New in This Release:

В· This version contains three major changes along with many bugfixes.
В· The color configuration has been replaced with an extensive styling system.
