Love these 3d boarders! This will make it easier to grab window boarders with the mouse too. I don't suppose you can add a bit of invisible grab area. Basically if you have 1px boarders, can the actual grab area for the cursor be double that of the boarder, or at least add an extra pixel of grab area either side of the boarder?

Shod is looking super cool man. I wonder if you can package it as a whole suite that includes all of your other tools (pimenu, xprompt, xnotify etc). You have basically created your own desktop environment here. Great work!

I' going to kindly ask Pin (who also packaged xnotify for pkgsrc) to do the same for shod.

Thanks.
I really want create some kind of desktop environment. That's why I want to fork sxiv to make it into a file manager. There are other stuff on the back of my mind that I want to write as well.

That would be great for the other tools, but I don't think he should package shod.
It is very experimental, and I am always changing it and experimenting new stuff.

Fair enough. But I am keen to see how this project develops and will love to try it out once you think its ready to be set free :)

Yet another update of my desktop.
Now I can tile shaded tabbed windows.
I'm using awk to parse the output of lsc and send the output to wmctrl to change the window focus.

This is actually fucking cool, I don't know any other WM that can do this!

Also, it would appear that, even after telling Pin what you said (not to bother packaging Shod just yet) he's made it available in pkgsrc/wip which is awesome for me because it means I can build and test it on NetBSD without needing to worry about compatibility issues (although I should probably learn the ropes anyway).

Loving every new development Phillbush, keep em coming! )

If you have any problem using shod, just ask me.
It'd be great to have more than one person trying the wm, so bugs can be easily discovered.
Shod is still unstable in the sense that I am constantly adding and removing features as I test them.

I'm happy to test it. Although, I've had some repository issues (was pulling from a somewhat secret repo which has now been locked) so I need to wait for the next update on CURRENT before I start building any new toys.

Because it's in pkgsrc/wip I might try build it anyway, but if it has any dependencies that aren't already in pkgsrc I might run into trouble. That's not your problem though.
