It occured to me that replacing the filter from "awful.widget.taglist.filter.all" to "awful.widget.taglist.filter.noempty" cannot fully replicate eminent. In previous eminent, when you call the function tag.viewprev or tag.viewnext to vist a previous or next tag. You will only jump backward or forward among the *non-empty* tags. But replacing the filter cannot change the behavior of tag.viewprev or tag.viewnext. Therefore now you will jump backward or forward the next tag no matter if it is empty or not.

I see no point to update the package for the awesome 3.5 or later. For awesome 3.5 or later, just like @kerny suggested, replace: mytaglist[s] = awful.widget.taglist(s, awful.widget.taglist.filter.all, mytaglist.buttons) in rc.lua with: mytaglist[s] = awful.widget.taglist(s, awful.widget.taglist.filter.noempty, mytaglist.buttons) Your awesome will have the same behaviour as eminent

@kerny, I think you are right. I have tested your code. It works without any problem. I guess you may also want to update the also wiki too, if you want.

I found out that you can have the same behavior as eminent with your default awesome installation. Just change filter from all to noempty in taglist creation in your rc.lua configuration. from this: mytaglist[s] = awful.widget.taglist(s, awful.widget.taglist.filter.all, mytaglist.buttons) to this: mytaglist[s] = awful.widget.taglist(s, awful.widget.taglist.filter.noempty, mytaglist.buttons)

The original Upstream URL is no longer available. Therefore in the package Upstream was set to the github source. Also added an option not to create a new tag if it's blank. Please check github source for details.

Thanks @kerny for the correction. I have corrected and updated the package.

There is bug on line 77 -- local s = screen and screen.index or capi.mouse.screen ++ local s = screen or capi.mouse.screen
