Hello! Im aware of the effort the community is doing to integrate the hot corners and the "aerosnap" funcionalities in the best way possible. I want to help in that task but recently heard about the possibility of openbox implementing native "aerosnap". My question is: should i go ahead and mess with the cb-wmhacks scripts or just wait until native funcionality and focus my efforts in other tasks?
Possibly I misunderstand, don't know what you mean with hot corners, but for sure aerosnap and grow-to-edge is already present in Waldorf?

Hot corners is the "ability" to run automatically a command when you bring the cursor to a corner of the screen, like in Mac or Gnome3. It was introduced by corenominal as a python script (/usr/bin/cb-hotcorners) which can be controlled via the cb-hotcornersrc file which will be created in your .config directory after the first run. He also introduced another python script (/usr/bin/cb-aerosnap) for the aerosnap funcionality. One idea was to assign the aerosnap commands to the hot corners in order to be able to aerosnap the windows using the mouse instead of the keyboard but it doesnt work quite well as long as im aware. So i was thinking in mess a bit with it but i heard something on openbox implementing that funcionality natively, so i dont know what to do
I would go ahead and work on your own aerosnap solution.
Open box might be awhile before it gets updated.
If nothing else chalk it up to learning. I for one would like to see what you come up with.
I myself use the hotcorners+aerosnap combo and it works fine for me on the laptop but it is lacking on my main system because it doesnt work on my second monitor. This opensnap apparently does so I might try and give it a shot.
is opensnap what lxle linux distro uses?

I guess no, cause LXLE Configuration Guide says:
Inducing the “Aero Snap” like feature
1. Select window you would like to move (either up, down, left or right)
2. Hold Super Key (windows key) and press and arrow on the keyboard in desired direction.
3. Do the same for the second window you would like to position.
Personally I use Win[+Shift]+mouse wheel Up/Down for window maximize/restore/snap left/snap right, it's really comfortable ;-)
Hi! I know that is possible to do aerosnap through keyboard shortcuts but I prefer the drag-the-window method which i think is more intuitive. I havent play around with opensnap yet so i dont know what features it offers but i want an aerosnap application which permits half screen and quarter screen snapping. At the moment im working on a python script to bring the hot-corners funcionality to Windows and I have found that using an in/out-of-the-corner flag to prevent the command insta-re-running provides a better experience than the bounce and sleep method use in cb-hotcorners. I will suggest it as an improvement in a future. I will continue working on it and I will see what can I bring to #!
kaiser: opensnap is mice oriented, by default it does: top border = fullscreen, left/right = half screen, bottom = close app. Also i'am pretty sure quarters would be possible by modifying configs (or maybe the sources) a bit (didn't test).
Yes you can to "quarter-snap" with opensnap by hacking the config files.
See for example: https://github.com/lawl/opensnap/blob/m … s/hit_left
Modify line 14 that sais:
and done. well, you need to edit hit_right too, and then you're done.
hmm just installed opensnap via the website instructions but nothing happens when I move mouse to edges - maybe conflicting with openboxes setup?
