    Remove sync focus call from win… (compare)

@zach-nervana
still not perfect though

@ianyh
We do something similar for registering observers on applications, but we do an exponential backoff.
It’s a lot of delay for an already slow operation, though.
Could you link me to the code you’re talking about?
Zach Dwiel
@zach-nervana
gotcha, that makes sense
unfortunately its free closed source https://talonvoice.com
its a general purpose framework for hands free interaction with mac
window management API is just one of the features
https://github.com/dwiel/talon_community/blob/master/misc/window_snap.py#L42 is one my scripts which also works around some of this slowness but at a high and inefficient level
Zach Dwiel
@zach-nervana
it sounds like part of the problem is that i use dragon naturallyspeaking
it forces window resize animations

Hi guys, quick question about the Amethyst tiling wm. Is it possible to use amethyst to send windows from one display to another? Is this handled via the "spaces" concept or is there a separate concept within Amethyst for displays?
Ian Ynda-Hummel
@ianyh
@AkshayBudhiraja the commands you are looking for are throwing windows to screens.
For example, throwing a window from your second display to your first display would be shift+ctrl+opt+w by default.
Akshay Budhiraja
@AkshayBudhiraja
Oh right, can't believe I missed that. Thanks @ianyh this works great.
Ian Ynda-Hummel
@ianyh
No worries. :)
And thanks!
Ian Ynda-Hummel
@ianyh
@ianfixes I implemented this for you. ianyh/Amethyst#785
It provides the UI and an adaptable mechanism for adding more info if needed.
Ian
@ianfixes
Thanks! I'll work on that

Hi guys. I would like to ask whether anybody has experience with using Intellij Idea with Amethyst?
For me it's not working. Amethyst cannot manage Intellij Idea at all.
Ian Ynda-Hummel
@ianyh
I know that java-based apps have had trouble in the past.
Ian Ynda-Hummel
@ianyh
Considering ways to make testing things easier. My current work involves making a generic window protocol.
Using the generics, though, requires everything that interacts with applications or windows use generics.
I can't decide if it will be too cumbersome, and it's a big change.
I will probably make the change and open a PR to see how much overhead it seems like it will have.
Ian
@ianfixes
I honestly still haven't looked at writing tests, but it would be cool to glimpse at more of the underlying architecture for it
Ian Ynda-Hummel
@ianyh
@ianfixes when you get a chance could you take a look at this PR? ianyh/Amethyst#813 I want to get a litmus test on how complex it is for contributors.
Mario Ricalde
@MarioRicalde
Is there some documentation about the .amethyst file somewhere? I see it mentioned in Issues but I fail to see any documentation about it.
Mario Ricalde
@MarioRicalde
Also, is there any documentation on how to use this with portrait monitors? I keep getting really really tall windowsi nstead of horizontal ones.
Ian
@ianfixes
portrait monitors should be no problem. It sounds like you might be using the "tall" layout instead of the "wide" layout though
If you're just looking for your windows to be tiled as individual rows, use the "row" layout. you may also want to experiment with increasing the "main pane count" on the wide layout. check the preferences dialog to look up the hotkeys for all of these
Mario Ricalde
@MarioRicalde
Thank you ! Is there any documentation about the ~/.amethyst file @ianfixes ?
Ian
@ianfixes
I'm a contributor to this project, and I've never messed with that file. What kind of information are you hoping to find?
Mario Ricalde
@MarioRicalde
I'm hoping to find the format or any documentation on how it works. Mainly because I want to add it to my dotfiles so I can sync it across computers without having to deal with plists.
Ian
@ianfixes
no idea. I can't seem to find that file on my machine
Timothy Brown
@keyofnight
Do you have a ~/.amethyst, @MarioRicalde? I'm interested in this too. :O
Ian Ynda-Hummel
@ianyh
@MarioRicalde sorry, coming back around on this.
The dotfile isn't explicitly documented at all, but the default preferences for the app are actually defined using one.
Peter
@peteanning
Hi I was wondering is there a way to get Amethyst to show which screens are associated with which number
Ian Ynda-Hummel
@ianyh
@peteanning Currently there is not.
Ian
@ianfixes
@ianyh seems like you should set them straight https://9to5mac.com/2019/04/11/macos-ios-hybrid/amp/
Ian Ynda-Hummel
@ianyh
Most of the comments are vociferously against it.
Which is fair, honestly.
I don’t think something like Amethyst should necessarily be the default. It’s easier to make macOS tiling than to make iOS floating.
Ian
@ianfixes

I like this quote

No more floating windows that waste space and are cumbersome to arrange.

We here at Amethyst agree... but the approach they took (iPad model) wasn't a great way to accomplish it

i.e. I like Amethyst better :P
