[xmonad] darcs patch: CenterMaster layout modifier

portnov portnov84 at rambler.ru
Mon Jan 12 02:50:59 EST 2009

Hello XMonad world!

I wrote new LayoutModifier. It places one (master) window at center of screen, 
on top of other windows. All other windows are managed by base layout. For 
example, with

centerMaster Grid

one will get something like http://iportnov.ru/files/center-master.png.

topRight layout modifier is similar, but places master window in top right 
corner instead of center.

  * CenteredMaster
  centerMaster layout modifier places master window at top of other, at center of screen. Other windows are managed by base layout.
  topRightMaster is similar, but places master window at top right corner.

 This enables you to pass a function of (String -> String) to a selection function to modify the string before executing it.  This way, you can input your own escape routines to make it shell command line safe, and/or do other fancier things.

 Everytime I invoked or hid Scratchpad, it would leave a 'Maybe.fromJust: Nothing' line in .xsession-errors, and updatePointer would stop working.

[fix focus issue for XMonad.Actions.Warp.banishScreen
Norbert Zeh <nzeh at cs.dal.ca>**20081212203532
 This patch ensures that the focus (or in fact the whose windowset)
 does not change as a result of a banishScreen.  The way this is implemented
 will become problematic if xmonad ever goes multithreaded.
[addition of XMonad.Actions.Warp.banishScreen
Norbert Zeh <nzeh at cs.dal.ca>**20081212192621
 This works on top of warpToScreen and, thus, suffers from the same issue:
 focus change.
[fixed documentation for banish
Norbert Zeh <nzeh at cs.dal.ca>**20081212191819
 banish actually warps to the specified corner of the current window, not
 the screen.
[addition of combined TallGrid layout
Norbert Zeh <nzeh at cs.dal.ca>**20081212184836
 Added a module XMonad.Layouts.GridVariants, which defines layouts
 Grid and TallGrid.  The former is a customizable version of Grid.  The latter
 is a combination of Grid and Tall (see doc of the module).

 If a floating window was focused, a cross-workspace 'raise' would cause a loop of
 shifting windows. Apparently the problem was 'focus' and its mouse-handling. Spencer
 suggested that the calls to focus be replaced with 'focusWindow', which resolved it.

[Prompt.hs: have historyCompletion filter dupes
gwern0 at gmail.com**20081008204710
 Specifically, it calls deleteConsecutiveDuplicates on the end product. uniqSort reverses order in an unfortunate way, so we don't use that.
 The use-case is when a user has added the same input many times - as it stands, if the history records 30 'top's or whatever, the completion will show 30 'top' entries! This fixes that.
