Yeah

@ianyh Hey, are you aware that something with Amethyst is interfering with dialogs in Intellij IDEA? It auto-closes drop-down dialogs for some reason and restarting Amethyst fixes that behaviour for a short while
Ian Ynda-Hummel
@ianyh
@deiga is it this? ianyh/Amethyst#651
Timo Sand
@deiga
@ianyh Yes! Sorry for not looking through the issues
Ian Ynda-Hummel
@ianyh
No worries. :)

Did somebody write a blog post or something? This many PRs is unusual. Not bad, just surprising.

Heh. I've thought about it, but hadn't gotten to it yet.

@ianfixes
No idea

@ianyh I only ran across Amethyst recently. I think I came across it on slant.co? I don't recall honestly, but I don't think it was a blog post.
Does anyone have any ideas about how I could determine if a Chrome window has a dialog open, so I can mark the Chrome window as "focused"? I've explored Silica and I tried adding what I was hoping would be a "ParentWindow" property but I couldn't get anything to work (parent window code that doesn't get me quite what I want: https://github.com/axs221/Silica/blob/master/Silica/SIWindow.m#L73)
Ian
@ianfixes
@ianyh can you comment on whether you plan to merge any of @axs221 's pull requests before mine? There will be a few merge conflicts, although it doesn't look like the overall functionality will conflict
Ian Ynda-Hummel
@ianyh
Yours has been pending for a long time so I'd like to get that in first.
@axs221 one thing you could try is taking the application element, enumerating windows, and looking for something that is modal. Depending on how it's done this might be expensive performance-wise to check each time, so you would have to store something that tracks window open and close events.
Ian
@ianfixes
@axs221 It looks like #654 has some code that adjusts position based on focus, which I had removed as part of #634

@ifreecarve Thanks for the heads up

I have the following config https://gist.github.com/dustinlacewell-wk/2fa42f0aceb2a74bae065160d81b1d7d but it doesn't seem to change the throw-space-* bindings....
Ian Ynda-Hummel
@ianyh
Not sure when it’ll be done. The time I have to spend on Amethyst is pretty sporadic.
For the space commands are you sure that you have the system commands for changing spaces enabled? It’s documented in the README.
dustinlacewell-wk
@dustinlacewell-wk
Yes I have enabled the Mission Control space keybindings. The problem is that Amethyst does not utilize the keybindings configured in the ~/.amethyst and just retains the defaults. Which is strange because it does read the other bindings in the file. Just not the "throw-space-*" bindings.

@ianfixes
Similarly to @axs221 's PR about minimum sizing for windows, I'm tossing around the idea of being able to resize the individual frames for the secondary windows. However, I'm a bit nervous about how much work this would be. There doesn't seem to be a data structure in place for subdividing the areas, just a single "ratio" as defined by the protocol.
This feature only makes sense if you can use the mouse to resize things (i.e. #627) but it would add a lot of nice flexibility
Has anyone had a chance to mess with my mouse-enabled branch that could offer feedback on that idea?
Ian Ynda-Hummel
@ianyh
@ifreecarve I finally found some time to finish reviewing your PR.
As for the individual frames thing, the way the paned layouts are designed is for simplicity. I haven't thought about it super hard, but I'm not sure you can unambiguously define the window sizes and adding windows gets very odd.
In general, that is the kind of thing that would need to be handled by a new layout, not the layout system itself.
And at that point it might make more sense for it to wait until there's a more robust layout configuration system; i.e., user-defined layouts using js.
Ian Ynda-Hummel
@ianyh
@dustinlacewell-wk there is some oddly hard-coded behavior with the commands for spaces that you might be running into. Are you able to modify them via the Preferences window?
Ian
@ianfixes
Thanks. I took care of most of them and now I'm going to see about that delegate pattern.
Ian
@ianfixes
@ianyh I appreciate your nit-picking a great deal because it's improving the quality of my contributions here :)
Ian
@ianfixes
@ianyh If I was going to define a global constant for CGWindowId(0) (context: this PR comment), should it go in Silica and/or Amethyst? And if so, where? Needs to be accessible from WindowManager, SIWindow+Amethyst, and one of the layouts.

@timuckun
Hi. I downloaded and tried Amethyst today and have a couple of questions
  1. Is there a way to make it more clear which window has focus now? The mac doesn't have a stark highlight on the focused window IMHO
  1. Is there a way to "focus" on a window by centering it on the screen but not making it full screen. Ideally I would like to bring it to center and then send it back to where it was.
  1. Is there a way to disable it without quitting entirely.
Thanks.
Felix-Petersen
@Felix-Petersen
@timuckun "3. Is there a way to disable it without quitting entirely." Yes, use the Floating mode
Ian
@ianfixes
@timuckun can you describe what you're going for with the "centering it on the screen but not making it full screen"? This sounds an awful lot like just dragging a window so that it overlaps other windows, which doesn't make sense in a tiling window manager...
ranmacar
@ranmacar
Hello! Somehow my keyboard shortcuts got wiped, probably when enabling crash reporting (deselects all other options?)
Is there a simple way to reimport them?
Erik Nelson
@erikthered
Can someone explain how "float small windows" works? Most dialog boxes that popup from my apps are not getting set to float automatically (IntelliJ in this particular case). Does the list below that checkbox in preferences cause all windows for that app to get floated or is that controlling which apps the "float small windows" setting gets applied to?
Michael Fellinger
@manveru
Anyone here using emacs? I can't get it to tile at all...
Liam Newman
@bitwiseman
You mean not in a terminal?
Ian
@ianfixes
some GNU-based apps (Gimp, on my machine) haven't immediately tiled for me. I'm not the person to talk to on why this happens though
Liam Newman
@bitwiseman
@manveru I just brew installed emacs 25.3 and it tiles okay.
Jake Zimmerman
@jez

I frequently use apps where I'd like the app to only take up half the screen, even if it's the only window open.

One thing I do to work around this is open up a new Finder window just to take up space.
The downside is that sometimes I fat finger a key on a Finder window and delete files :confounded:

I see that there are some blank windows in the screenshot at the top of the README. Those would work fine!
Does anyone else have ways that they work around making windows take up less space in Amethyst?

Jake Zimmerman
@jez
Ah, I got nerd sniped and wrote the app I was looking for:

As a quick FYI, I am alive and I will be coming back to Amethyst (hopefully soon). I have been very busy and in very poor health recently.
