A full-featured, hackable tiling window manager written and configured in Python

Qtile is simple, small and extensible and runs on both X11 and Wayland. It is entirely configured in Python and has a command shell that allows all aspects of Qtile to be managed and inspected. It features complete remote scritability, meaning you can write scripts to set up workspaces, manipulate windows, update status bar widgets and more.
