herbstluftwm is a manual tiling window manager for X11 using Xlib and Glib. Its main features can be described with: - The layout is based on splitting frames into subframes which can be split again or can be filled with windows; - Tags (or workspaces or virtual desktops or …) can be added/removed at runtime. Each tag contains an own layout exactly one tag is viewed on each monitor. The tags are monitor independent; - It is configured at runtime via ipc calls from herbstclient. So the configuration file is just a script which is run on startup.
