Kahakai is a fork of the Waimea window manager, with the intent to create a language agnostic scriptable window manager, while maintaining the original features of Waimea, and extending upon them. Kahakai is pronounced with the 'ca' in car, the 'ha' in hard, and 'ki' from kite.
By "language agnostic", we mean that the scripts which control actions in the window manager are not language specific, they can be written in any language supported by SWIG. For starters, we plan on supporting Python with the addition of Ruby and Perl shortly thereafter.
Here are some key features of "Kahakai":
· Window/edge snapping
· Transparent window titles and menus with anti-aliased fonts
· Python scripting (Ruby/Perl support planned) used for configuration
· Dockapp support
· Pixmap styles, compatible with Blackbox/Fluxbox/Openbox & Waimea styles
· Viewports, multiple desktops
· KDE and GNOME support
