Scripting BSPWM with external rules

A more natural way to manual tiling operations

In this screen cast I show how my external rules script informs the window manager about the behaviour of receptacles and preselections. These are some advanced features of BSPWM for controlling the placement of windows. The scripted method is complementary to the operations I demonstrated in my previous video: Advanced manual tiling in BSPWM

As with the rest of the session, the external rules script is part of my dotfiles.
