Note: Waysome is work in progress and not ready or useable yet.

Waysome is a window manager using wayland. It is especially made for powerusers and people who like to configure their window manager very atomicly.

Waysome is developed as a semester project at Hochschule Furtwangen University.

Waysome does not define any behaviour. It can be configured and scripted over an API, which allows the user to define the tiling, floating and overall behaviour. For example, if you want it to behave like i3wm, you can configure it this way. You can also configure it to behave like dwm, awesome or anything else. You can script it to do tiling in a completely new way, to fit your needs in every single bit. Therefor, waysome can be considered as tiling window manager 'framework'.

Yet, a minimal configuration will be shipped with the repository.
