A simple window switcher for the Sway Wayland compositor written in python using wxPython.



curl | sudo apt-key add -
curl | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/debian-micke-unstable.list
sudo apt update && sudo apt install swayswitch


sudo rpm --import PUBLIC.KEY
sudo dnf config-manager --add-repo
sudo dnf install swayswitch


Reload config and open up window switcher with Mod4+tab. Move around the switcher using arrow-keys or Tab. Esc aborts and enter switches window. It is also possible to select window with the mouse.

Two keybindings work by default, Mod4+f to toggle fullscreen mode, that is if you manage to bring up the switcher while in fullscreen mode you can display the switcher window by exiting fullscreen mode. You can also exit switcher mode by pressing Mod4+q, this is usefull if you manage to get another window on top of the switcher window somehow.

Config files

SwaySwitch uses two configuration files, one is supplied with the package and is installed to /etc/sway/config.d/swayswitch.conf. It contains default keybindings for Sway. The other one is optionally supplied by the user as $HOME/.local/swayswitch/config in toml format.

Possible options are:

label_len = 20
icon_size = 128

The example above is the default options. label_len is the total length of the text label above buttons in number of characters and icon_size is the size of the icons in pixels.
