They should start impementing proper config files for tiling WM's. Everytime somebody doesn't like the color of the borders, a WM is forked and given a new name. But it also seems like the best reason for learning lisp is the infinite potential of annoying users all over the world.
I'm so meta, even this acronym

Adding "exec clfswm" to .xinit or whatever file you use works fine for starting it, make sure cl-asdf is installed (it won't start without it, but that's not a dependency. ╮ (. ◕ ᴗ ◕.) ╭)
I'm not digging it yet. I <3 my dmenu, and that's gone. The option that's there for running files built in has no tab complete. I don't use lisp, and it's not really tiling anything for me.
It's not resizing to fit the new resolution because as far as I've seen, there's no way to restart it inplace. This isn't looking good so far.
First issue is the hotkeys are stupid, second issue is that there's way to much space left between "frames" when you initially make them. I really have to figure out the config for this to make it make sense.
The whole idea of hotkeys is to be easy, but so far everything I've wanted to do has me do multiple combinations of keys. Using mod1 instead of mod4, minus one.
Making me enter "second mode" to do any useful commands (like spawn a new frame), minus one.
This seems like it'll be counter-productive for me, but I'll play with it more in the future.

Point & Squirt
I went run a few programs, had to do this
(; ; ; (for f in *) (do mv "$f" ~/backups/"$f".bkup) (done))
Awful stuff, that polish notation. But really, it's a great idea if I could get it to work.
FINALLY FOUND OUT HOW TO DO A FEW THINGS.
I can almost predict where frames are going to be made now. Also I've set a few colors.
I'll say it again, since I only said it in chat:
Frames as workspaces is a genius idea.
That said, I don't think this is the wm for me. It definitely has some new ideas (some I like, some I don't), but not quite what I go for.
might give it a whirl then, the built in expose feature for choosing child windows looks good although there are other methods to use including a tag feature.
Did you build it or use synaptic as I see the version in synaptic is ancient as usual
