>TFW i3wm will never support Wayland due to being too dependent on X, and requiring a complete rewrite for Wayland support.

However there is sway WM:
https://github.com/SirCmpwn/sway

It aims to be a drop in replacement for i3wm but with wayland support and some of it's own goodies.

Has anyone of you ever tried Sway? I'm just asking before I attempt the plunge into it.

  No.202

I tried to migrate to it a few times but it feels clunky thanks to the fuarrrk up that wlc is. Will try it again once they have their own compositor which apparently is 0.13.

  No.203

i wonder how long until i can fully use it as a replacement

I've never used Wayland as I found it confusing as hell to install it on a computer already running X and getting it to be a choice as a session like with Fedora. I would love to see Afterstep or Windowmaker support Wayland.
