Running a tiling WM on your phone sounds like a stupid idea... until you discover . The whole thing is simple but amazing - it takes one or two days to get used to it, but then you know it inside out. Thanks to the built-in extensibility and simple codebase, you can change everything to your liking. This interface and its skilled community have become a great asset in
the wider smartphone ecosystem!

@ollieparanoid sxmo is really great! I plan to spend more time fixing issues running it on the Librem 5 so I could switch to it at some point in the future!

@ollieparanoid I didn't even know this existed until today. I might have to try it out once I have a Linux phone...

@alexbuzzbee chances are that you can test out on an old android with 😀 Device support varies greatly though, so make sure to read the wiki:

@ollieparanoid seems a weird idea. I mean the screen is not so big and apps are generally not made for splitting

From the only two things I'd like:

+ It will take the same i3 config I have on my destops so will be fast to config
+ going from one app to another can be fast

Maybe will take some time to try it

It is very geeky, personally i don't feel attracted to the idea, but it feels like it has its own set of advantages.

@AmarOk the video is nice, but it's a user's review of the (now outdated) 1.3.0 version. You can probably get a better impression from the talk the developers recently gave at alpineconf:

Regarding i3 config, it's actually using dwm. 😉
