Bspwm edition is a minimalistic manjaro edition which aims to make terminal approachable for beginners. It is very focused on efficiency of workflow and resource usage, and can adapt to many different workflows. Recently the edition has evolved to a new direction - or three directions to be exact.
First we have the successor of the previous bspwm edition. It features gtk3 and cli apps only. It has remained largely the same, with some improvements:
- new cool wallpapers by @muser
- new ranger based wallpaper switcher with image previews
- syntax highlighting, icons and image/video previews in ranger
- micro, excellent text editor
- new rofi based menus and scripts
- gapdrag, you resize windows by dragging the border between them with mouse
Next, we have bspwm-minimal, which is even more minimalistic version of the bspwm edition. It includes no true gui applications at all, and uses instead terminal applications that feel and behave like gui ones. It uses the new and excellent rofi based mainmenu and desktop menu by @kainonergon. It is most minimalistic manjaro desktop to date, and boots under 100Mib ram used.
Finally, we have bspwm-mate, which does away with the minimalism and instead gives you the bspwm workflow from the comfort of a full desktop environment. As testament to it’s completeness, it even features graphical installer, Calamares.
