Projects / kittens


Kittens is an application container that can embed X applications and steal them from your window manager in order to provide advanced window management options to any window manager. It can tab windows together, split to show them vertically side by side, and allow applications and splits to be resized with the mouse or keyboard. It works in environments such as GNOME, KDE, and XFCE. Kittens is also ideal for managing applications without having to use a mouse.

    Release Notes: Vertical splitting was implemented. Tabbing was added. Applications that don't fit into columns overflow into the last column, which rotates between contained applications. An application can be grabbed with the mouse. A menu can be displayed.

    I abandoned this project with hope that the kwin-tiling project would release in KDE 4.4. Unfortunately this hasn't happened and looks like it still won't be ready in KDE 4.5, so perhaps there might be some worth in picking this back up again.
