Using i3 Manjaro community edition — what a great edition.
Question: urxvt seems a great terminal; Arch seems to love it. But why? Is it because it is very lightweight/small footprint, and/or it is a keyboard-only-focused (ie, h,j,k,l warrior) ?
nothing against being a keyboard-only h,j,k,l warrior — I am one, in fact. Maybe it wasn’t obvious from my preference for i3
The issue I see is that urxvt is hard to customize at run-time; it seems have to modify ~/.Xresources painfully by hand, then restart X. I’m all for dotfile-style text configs, but surely not as raw as .Xresources
So… in light of this, am I missing some fundamental benefit to sticking with urxvt ? Is there a way more user-friendly and customizable terminal that sticks true to being lightweight and keyboard-only (h,j,k,l warrior) focused?
EDIT: Preferably a terminal that can hide File | Edit | … menu . Those definitely look out of place in i3.
