Overview of SXHKD

The Simple X Hotkey Daemon for managing BSPWM (and more)

In this screen cast, I offer an overview of SXHKD, the “Simple X Hotkey Daemon”. This is a program that stores custom key bindings. We use it to control the window manager, as well as launch other arbitrary processes

I use sxhkd in tandem with my tiling window manager: bspwm. These two programs have been developed by the same person: Bastien Dejean.

The demo is based on the configurations that are bundled with the rest of my dotfiles.
