Fid Core Library is the core library for the Frigand Imperial Desktop, a genuine Unix desktop environment based around multiprocessing, text-stream IPC, and the "everything is a file" concept. It supports Emacs-like extensibility, customizability, and built-in multi-buffer support.
hsclock is an accurate, multi-zone GTK clock that can also run in a tty. Currently configuration is solely by commandline options. hsclock uses GTK timeouts to synchronize with the system clock, making display updates accurate to within milliseconds. The time output format can be set with a date-like format option.
fid-listbuffer is a buffer implementation for the Frigand Imperial Desktop. Fid buffers are typically mutable monoids over particular unit types; the exact unit type and the equations satisfied by the monoid determine the particular buffer type. This package defines a parametric buffer type for the simple case of a free monoid over a unit type that is to be exposed to the programmer, where 'replaceableRegion' additionally is equivalent to (\ r d -> return True).
xmonad is a tiling window manager for X. Windows are arranged automatically to tile the screen without gaps or overlap, maximising screen use. Window manager features are accessible from the keyboard; a mouse is optional. xmonad is extensible in Haskell, allowing for powerful customisation. Custom layout algorithms, key bindings, and other extensions may be written by the user in config files. Layouts are applied dynamically, and different layouts may be used on each workspace. Xinerama is fully supported, allowing windows to be tiled on several physical screens.
