Actually, I set up Emacs with evil today and found https://github.com/mtreca/emacs-theme-sorcery. It's pretty great.

Lazy man's cwm setup. Can't find a colorscheme that I REALLY like, so I guess I'll stick with the default one :)

The best dark Theme in my experience is the RGB-inverted default theme.

Points for Lainzine! What compositor are you using for the drop shadows?

Compton with a slightly modified version of torvim's config.

Booted up my Openbsd tablet once again. This thing is really slow, but that's why we have ssh and drawterm right?

Question: Is that a terminal based game or just a colorful matrixy type thing?

My daily is a bit more noisy and less empty-aesthetic than many of other screenshots, but it's practical and mostly consistent :) forever running Qtile.

Can you guess my favourite colours?

I'm playing with dockapps in shod.
For now, it just maps dockapps in the sequence they spawn. But I'll add support for configuring the order and position of dockapps and add an option for making a regular window be interpreted as a dockapp so it can be "swallowed" and docked like a dockapp (like what FVWM and AfterStep do).

I'll probably replace my lemonbar with a dock of docked windows.

Love it. Although you aren't using the motif decorations on the qtile boarders anymore?
Secondly, do you have a PinePhone? please feel free to start a thread about your experience with it. I'm interested to know how well they perform, esspecially now that Manjaro have release a PinePhone OS

They can be easily enabled and disabled:

Yeah I use a PinePhone running mobian as my daily driver phone. It's usable if you don't have huge demands from a mobile device, and mobian is much better than UBPorts IMO. I haven't tried Manjaro, maybe I'll try it out. It would be good to get some discussion going about the pinephone on nixers.

Absolutely! Start a thread :)

Yet another theme I have been playing around with. This one, I am calling "cursed", is inspired by "sourcerer" by xero and loosely based on the colours I had in my "port_royal" scheme.

[Image: cursed-scrot.png]

The "blank space" is because I have one landscape and one potrait monitor and scrot fills in the space.

I could do with a shot of rum right now.

I really like that colorscheme. My first thought was a mix of Gruvbox and sourcerer.

Running a different theme of katriawm/bevelbar at work now:

I have always ignored docks and dockapps, maybe that was a mistake. I feel like my status bars should actually be docked windows. If I only had the time to re-work all this …

Yeah, I thought that a bar could be made up of little windows placed one next to the other.
Then I made my wm give special treatment to dockapps and map them at the edge of the monitor.
Here's how it looks now:

But then I had another idea: a wm-agnostic bar/docker that "swallows" dockapps.
But I have little to no time to work on this. My classes have begun and I have like three new programming languages to learn at the same time.
Maybe at the end of the year.

Thanks. I have never used Gruvbox, but just had a quick look at the scheme. I can sort of see what you mean.

A bonus dual monitor one.

EDIT: Be warned, I have tried imgup.net as an attempt to not use teknik. We'll see how that goes. Here's the teknik link: https://u.teknik.io/IZzTj.png.

So I only just started looking back on old posts... and this made my jaw drop. Would love to see what you are working on these days (also link me to your github plzz) :)

Yep, that sounds like a sane approach to me. I wouldn’t be surprised, if such a tool already existed. I mean, all these ideas are old, aren’t they? Someone should have done that already? :)

(My current setup with bevelbar+infofeld2 feels pretty weird to me at the moment, it involves writing farbfeld images to the disk and all that … I never used AfterStep, NextStep or WindowMaker, maybe that’s why I didn’t think about “dockapps” before. Bevelbar is basically just the dwm status bar on steroids … Very primitive. Oof. This all needs to be rewritten.)

I'm pretty lame these days... my desktop runs XFCE with Arc-Dark and Gruvbox for terminal colors. I regularly use some software that doesn't play nice in tiling WMs, so it is a pretty standard XFCE with a bunch of xfce4-terminal windows open at any time.

My laptop is currently on the fritz but it's got a very old-school looking CDE running on OpenBSD, I'll have to take a picture once I fix the laptop.
