window switcher for use with window managers?

I quite like this little app I am using with AwesomeWM called simpleswitcher
https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php … 7#p1152557

f11 to show list of windows on current desktop
f12 to show list of all windows
I guess if you use a tiling WM that always shows all windows on a desktop then the F11 bit wont be much use.

You can implement this in awesome with a binding like this:

awful.key({ modkey, }, "F12",
  function ()
  awful.menu.clients({ width=300},
    {keygrabber=true, coords={x=490,y=300} })
  end),

changing of course the width and coords to your monitor's resolution. You could do something similar with F11 I'm sure.

Re: window switcher for use with window managers?

cool, thanks for that, I also just noticed ! that rightclicking on the status bar at the top you get a drop down with running apps on it. Oh well this might still be of some use to users of other window managers that dont' provide something like it.

hmm, I tried adding your code to lua.rc and reloaded awesome but it crashed.

^ [crash] check awesome -k in a terminal and see if there are any syntax errors. it might be a misplaced comma or parenthese!
