euclid-wm is a minimalist tiling window manager for X11. It is designed to allow quick and easy management of numerous windows entirely from easy-to-learn, Vim-like key-bindings. It seeks to do two things in particular: balance the ease of use common among automatic-layout tiling window managers with the flexibility of manual layout window managers, and create a useful way to handle minimized applications.
