Community-maintained extensions for the XMonad window manager.

xmonad core is minimal, stable, yet extensible. xmonad-contrib is home to hundreds of additional tiling algorithms and extension modules. The two combined make for a powerful X11 window-manager with endless customization possibilities. They are, quite literally, libraries for creating your own window manager.


For installation and configuration instructions, please see:

If you run into any trouble, consult our documentation or ask the community for help.


We welcome all forms of contributions:

Please do read the CONTRIBUTING document for more information about bug reporting and code contributions. For a brief overview of the architecture and code conventions, see the documentation for the XMonad.Doc.Developing module. If in doubt, talk to us.
