I prefer to KISS as much as possible. All I need is a terminal and a browser and I've got all I need for 99% of what I do. I prefer smaller laptops so I try to take advantage of as much real estate as I can.

I keep the look and feel minimal so that it's less distracting so, to that end, the "color scheme" is dark with some gray shadings and a single color used by tmux and the conky bar up top. The script bin/schemecolor will sed the indicated color into my tmux.conf and xmonad.hs and will reload both so that I can change the color on-the-fly.



Running a dark theme and using the cVim plugin to use vim bindings. This makes me very happy.

Nothing to be done here for simple terminal, of course, other than setting the font to DejaVu Sans Mono


Simple statusbar that just shows currently open terminals and an identifier for the current pane.

Wrote a vim plugin that integrates with tmux somewhat.

It is exec'ed by the shell upon login.


Ported my bash prompt which displays information such as git and mercurial repository status and flags if the previous command returned a non-zero value and/or if a process is currently backgrounded.


My focus was to enable layouts that let me take advantage of my small laptop screen in a way that most benefits what I am currently working on. I couple that with a good number of custom keybindings so that I don't have to use the mouse to interact with the window manager. I also have been making pretty heavy use of dmenu to provide me some extra control.

Using dzen2 to display the workspaces.

Also using dmenu for some application launchers as well as the selector which lets me change the color theme.

#A few sample custom key bindings that I love
Binding What it does
Super+n Switches to the next empty workspace
Super+Alt+n Opens a browser window in the next available empty workspace
Super+Shift+n Shifts active window to the next empty workspace
Super+Tab Switches to the previous workspace
Super+Ctrl+[WS#] Swaps current workspace with indicated workspace

#conky + dzen2

Displaying statistics such as time, IP addresses, CPU use, battery life, etc.
