Well, as @DevNul mentnioned here and @Bryanpwo mentioned here we should start a new topic on making i3wm for EOS.
That’s my favorite WM so far, and I would like to get involved in creating configs, but I wan’t to mention that I’m not the best in ricing i3 - I’m used to very raw form of this WM. So much to learn for me.
So I think in the beginning we should discuss the overview of how it should look like. In my opinion, we should stick close to what has been accomplished with XFCE - very simple, understandable for newbie, yet beautiful and modern enough that will not scare newcomers.
So I think:
- no aggressive colours (grays maybe?)
- nice icon set
- i3lock with blurring
- wifi, sound, power control plugins/icon sets
- basic shortcut set with cheat sheet displayed at desktop background (idea from manjaro)
- some program starting manager - I use
Anything else which I forgot to mention from basic set?
