i3 is a tiling window manager, completely written from scratch.

i3 was created because wmii, our favorite window manager at the time,
didn't provide some features we wanted (multi-monitor done right,
for example), had some bugs, didn't progress since quite some time and
wasn't easy to hack at all (source code comments/documentation
completely lacking). Still, we think the wmii developers and
contributors did a great job. Thank you for inspiring us to create i3.

i3status is optional, but useful to provide a system status bar.

This requires: libev, dmenu, xcb-util-xrm, yajl, perl-JSON-XS, perl-AnyEvent, libxkbcommon
