Sawfish is an extensible window manager using a Lisp-based scripting language. Its policy is very minimal compared to most window managers.
Its aim is simply to manage windows in the most flexible and attractive manner possible. All high-level WM functions are implemented in Lisp for future extensibility or redefinition.
These are some of the features that set Sawfish apart from other window managers:
- Powerful key-binding: Virtually every function provided by Sawfish can be bound to keys (or mouse buttons).
- Event hooking: For many events (moving windows etc.) you can customize the way Sawfish will respond.
- Window matching: When windows are created you can match them to a set of rules and automatically perform actions on them.
- Flexible theming: Sawfish allows for very different themes to be created and a variety of third-party themes are readily available.
