Do you like configurability and lightweightness of tiling window managers? Do you like cutting-edge
technology and want to try a tiling window manager running on Wayland?
perceptia is for you!
perceptia tries to merge concepts from most popular tiling window managers like
dwm with the freshness of Wayland.
For main objectives of the project see the Perceptia Manifesto.
There are still many things to work on. If you are looking for a working compositor it is a bit too
early to choose
perceptia, but if you have programming skills and want to join the development team, your help will be appreciated.
Backbone of every project is community. User input is especially valuable for young projects. It is
the users that shape what the project will later become. Please go to
github and vote for features you want to see in
perceptia or share your own ideas. Your input will help to decide which features should be
implemented first and how they should be designed.
This repository consists of:
cognitive - a loose set of (Rust) crates helping creating surface compositors or other low
level graphic applications
perceptia - a dynamic (tilling or stacking) Wayland surface compositor basing on
For instructions on building and running
perceptia see installation.md.
For configuration options see configuration.md.
