Sorry for taking so long to reply - but I disagree, the configuration you posted doesn't do anything this package does.

  • "workspace next" shows the next used workspace, whereas i3-new-workspace opens the next empty workspace.
  • "resize grow/shrink" binds growing and shrinking the currently focused window to specific keys, no matter where the window is. I think that isn't intuitive. For example, the right arrow key should grow a window on the left of the screen, but shrink a window on the right if that is focused. This is what i3-smart-resize does.

This application is useless. It only duplicates existing functionality.

@Feresey: Cool, I didn't know about the commands for the previous and next workspace yet! But how is this related to this package?

bindsym Mod4+Tab workspace next
bindsym Mod4+Shift+Tab workspace prev
mode "resize" {
        bindsym Left resize shrink width 10 px or 10 ppt
        bindsym Down resize grow height 10 px or 10 ppt
        bindsym Up resize shrink height 10 px or 10 ppt
        bindsym Right resize grow width 10 px or 10 ppt

        # back to normal: Enter or Escape
        bindsym Return mode "default"
        bindsym Escape mode "default"
bindsym $mod+r mode "resize"

just part of my config
