h1. What is subtle?\015\012\015\012[[subtle]] is a *manual* tiling window manager with a rather uncommon approach of tiling: Instead of a bunch of predefined layouts, windows are placed on customizeable positions (called [[gravity|gravities]]) inside of a grid. The user can freely modify [[gravity]] definitions and assign [[gravity|gravities]] to windows either manually or via [[tagging|tags]] rules in the [[config]].\015\012\015\012Another unique concept is the *strict* [[tagging]]: Unlike other tiling window managers, [[subtle]] doesn't allow weak [[tagging]] and always maps windows to virtual desktops (calles [[views]]) with the appropriate [[tagging|tags]] *regardless* of the current active [[views|view]].\015\012\015\012{{column(:start, width: 40%; vertical-align: top)}}\015\012\015\012h2.
