Recently I'm becoming more and more frustrated with stacking window managers, but I am not sure which tiling wms support the mouse very well, because I want an experience similar to acme. I know of the various window managers but they always mention powerful keyboard only control. Can you perhaps point me in the right direction to look? Do you have any recommendations? Thanks in advance!

The only tiling wm I know that implements an acme-like interface is wmii.
IIRC, because I don't use it in a long time, you can move windows like in acme with the mouse.
But it is a bit hard to configure.

But for using mouse chords you have to use other programs like sxhkd that bind commands to keyboard/mouse actions.
You may also be interested in writing a plumbing script to use with your wm.

Right, I'll check these out. Thank you!
I was also wondering about this window manager you wrote; is its source code available somewhere online?

Yes, it is: https://github.com/phillbush/shod
But it is somewhat buggy and I don't recommend you to use it but for testing purposes.
