I3ALTLAYOUT

i3altlayout helps you handle more efficiently your screen real estate in i3wm by auto-splitting windows on their longest side.

If you open 4 windows, your workspace would look

             like this                               instead of this

Installation

Install the script from pypi

$ sudo pip3 install i3altlayout

Offline installation

from the online host, run the following

$ mkdir -p /tmp/i3altlayout && pip3 download -d /tmp/i3altlayout i3altlayout

Then compress the directory /tmp/i3altlayout and transfer it to the offline host.

In the offline host, with the decompressed i3altlayout directory in /tmp/i3altlayout, run the following:

$ sudo pip3 install --no-index --find-links=/tmp/i3altlayout i3altlayout

Usage

Start the script directly with i3 by adding it to your config file (usually under ~/.config/i3/config):

exec --no-startup-id "i3altlayout"

Or test it by running it from the command line (i3altlayout) and open a few windows.
