Ok then, I was occasionally looking at desktop environments of colleagues when dealing with some weird bugs and I have a thought about window manager modes people tent do use.
So, I set down in the evening, and wrote this: https://cleac.me/minimal-tech.html#10-june-2019
One more entry in #MinimalTech, now about tiling window managers, yaaaay.
Hope you will enjoy it :)
I've been configuring a #termux environment on my #Android tablet and wanted to have mutt email in there too. And I didn't want to put passwords in plaintext everywhere. So, this is how I've figured the thing out. Kinda #MinimalTech, but with a bit more power 😉
A minute of love to the unix way and #MiminalTech. It is so fun and rewarding to make all the things work together the simplest way. This is how I achieved the simplest way of switching between mailboxes in #mutt without typing password every single time.
Now a look at #MinimalTech slightly from different perspective. There is low probabilty that you will be a more productive developer if you will use plain old #vim and you code in modern languages that a guy with an #IDE. (except you turn your vim into IDE) #VimVersusIDE
@alexcleac An important distinction when it comes to WM is that there is plenty of flavors... if one don't fit maybe another will. They can be quite different in feel. Personally I like Bspwm as I like shell scripting and that it both do manual and automatic tiling..
The other part of it is finding the tools... which panel you like. How you will launch applications e.t.c... Aesthetics of course and speed.. ;)
