Project ID: 45567


river is a dynamic tiling wayland compositor that takes inspiration from dwm and bspwm.

Design goals

  • Simplicity and minimalism, river should not overstep the bounds of a window manager.
  • Window management based on a stack of views and tags.
  • Dynamic layouts generated by external, user-written executables. (A default rivertile layout generator is provided.)
  • Scriptable configuration and control through a custom wayland protocol and separate riverctl binary implementing it.

Installation Instructions

dnf copr enable alebastr/river dnf install river
