My custom Spectrwm configuration

My config

This is my personal config for the Spectrwm window manager. Spectrwm its a really minimal program to manage windows, not as simple as DWM, while still being fairly customizable. You can see how it looks here!

My config

Initial setup

These first lines are pretty easy to understand. The variables in spectrwm describe their functionality quite well. These first lines are just setting up the minimal, simple configuration.

    # Initial setup config
workspace_limit = 9
focus_mode = manual
focus_close = previous
focus_close_wrap = 0
focus_default = last
spawn_position = next
workspace_clamp = 1
warp_focus = 0
warp_pointer = 0

Window decoration & boundaries

This is a fairly customizable section of the config, we configure the borders of the windows, the colors when focused or not, as well as the gaps and padding.

I like to have quite a big amount of gaps. The focus color is the blue from the Nord color scheme, and the unfocused is dark gray

    # Window decorations & boundaries
border_width = 3
color_focus = rgb:b4/8e/ad
color_unfocus = rgb:2e/34/40
region_padding = 0
tile_gap = 0
boundary_width = 50

The bar

My bar is the most important aspect of this config, since its the one that will appear in all of my workspaces. It is a top bar and it shows all of the available workspaces, marking the current one with an asterisk The bar borders are useless to me since I only have one screen

    # Bar configuration
bar_enabled = 1
bar_border_width = 1
bar_border[1] = rgb:18/18/18
bar_border_unfocus[1] = rgb:18/18/18
bar_color[1] = rgb:2e/34/40,rgb:eb/cb/8b,rgb:a3/be/8c,rgb:bf/61/6a,rgb:b4/8e/ad,rgb:88/c0/d0,rgb:d0/87/70,rgb:3b/42/52,rgb:4c/56/6a
bar_color_selected[1] = rgb:88/c0/d0
bar_font_color[1] = rgb:ec/ef/f4,rgb:2e/34/40,rgb:2e/34/40,rgb:eb/cb/8b,rgb:a3/be/8c,rgb:bf/61/6a,rgb:b4/8e/ad,rgb:88/c0/d0,rgb:d0/87/70,rgb:3b/42/52,rgb:4c/56/6a
bar_font = Blex Mono Nerd Font:pixelsize=15:antialias=true
bar_action = ~/.config/spectrwm/baraction.sh
bar_action_expand = 1
bar_justify = right
bar_format = +|L +@bg=0;+S +L +@bg=0; +@bg=8; +C +@fg=0; +|2R +A +@bg=0;+@fg=0; %a, %b %d %R +<
bar_at_bottom = 0
workspace_indicator = listall,markcurrent
stack_enabled = 1
clock_enabled = 1
clock_format = %a, %b %d %R
iconic_enabled = 1
maximize_hide_bar = 0
window_class_enabled = 1
window_instance_enabled = 1
window_name_enabled = 0
verbose_layout = 0
urgent_enabled = 1
urgent_collapse = 0

Starting up and applications

No need to talk about these, I use these programs to set up stuff as soon as my session starts, maybe I should put some in another file, like .initrc, but I've not done it yet.

    # Autorunning applications
autorun = ws[1]:nitrogen --set-auto ~/Pictures/walls/paranoid.jpg &
autorun = ws[1]:setxkbmap -layout latam &
autorun = ws[1]:alacritty
autorun = ws[1]:volumeicon
autorun = ws[1]:xfce4-power-manager
autorun = ws[1]:syncthing
autorun = ws[1]:nm-applet &
autorun = ws[1]:lxpolkit &
autorun = ws[1]:picom --experimental-backends --backend glx --blur-method 'dual_kawase' --blur-strength 6

Other important details are setup here, like workspace names and defining a Modifier key, I could use glyphs as workspace names, but honestly, they don't really describe that well what I want to do in them.

    # Workspace names and modkey
layout = ws[1]:4:0:0:0:vertical
name = ws[1]:WEB
name = ws[2]:DEV
name = ws[3]:MAIL
name = ws[4]:FILE
name = ws[5]:CHAT
name = ws[6]:SSH
name = ws[7]:EMACS
name = ws[8]:TERM
name = ws[9]:ETC
# ", " ", " ", " ", " ", " ", " ", " ", " ", " "
modkey = Mod4

Quirks

These are different ways to treat the windows of specific programs, making them float, or appear in a certain workspace all the time. These are really powerful settings, but are still being set up, since some apps don't behave as I expect them to do so.

    # Quirks and custom per program behavior
quirk[firefox:Dialog] = FLOAT + MINIMALBORDER + TRANSSZ
quirk[Image Lounge] = FLOAT
quirk[firefox] =  IGNOREPID + TRANSSZ + ANYWHERE
quirk[Thunderbird] = ANYWHERE + IGNORESPAWNWS + IGNOREPID + TRANSSZ
quirk[Claws-mail] = ANYWHERE + IGNORESPAWNWS + IGNOREPID + TRANSSZ
quirk[Xarchiver] = ANYWHERE + IGNORESPAWNWS + IGNOREPID + TRANSSZ
quirk[Lxappearance] = FLOAT
quirk[Pavucontrol] = FLOAT
quirk[Volumeicon] = FLOAT + ANYWHERE + IGNORESPAWNWS + IGNOREPID
quirk[discord:Discord Updater] = FLOAT + IGNOREPID
quirk[stalonetray] = FLOAT + ANYWHERE
quirk[trayer] = FLOAT + ANYWHERE + NOFOCUSCYCLE + MINIMALBORDER + NOFOCUSONMAP
quirk[Lxpolkit] = FLOAT + IGNOREPID +FOCUSPREV + IGNORESPAWNWS
quirk[Xfce4-power-manager-settings] = FLOAT + ANYWHERE
quirk[Nm-connection-editor] = ANYWHERE + IGNORESPAWNWS + FLOAT
quirk[Pcmanfm] = ANYWHERE + IGNORESPAWNWS
quirk[Thunar] = ANYWHERE + IGNORESPAWNWS

General Keybindings

This is the defining factor of any window manager, how good and optimized are your keybindings. As you can assume, these are made to fit my needs, so your mileage may vary, but a lot of them are just the default one, in case you are wondering.

It is important to remember that default kebindings are not unbinded unless you add bind[] = <keybinding>, so that's why you'll seee a few of them here and there.

Program Keybindings

These are the keybindings I setup myself, in order to open programs and execute any command I configure, they don't change much, but I add some new one from time to time.
