h1. What is subtle?

[[subtle]]
subtle?\015\012\015\012[[subtle]] is a *manual* tiling window manager with a rather uncommon approach of tiling: Instead of relying on predefined layouts, [[subtle]] divides the screen into a grid with customizeable slots (called [[gravity|gravities]]). For better understanding, the default [[config]] uses a 3x3 grid and maps each [[gravity]] to one key of the numpad. With those keys, [[Clients|windows]] can be moved directly to the desired [[gravity]] - the same can be done with [[tagging]] rules in the [[config]].

Another
[[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 (called [[views]]) with matching [[tagging|tags]], *regardless* of the current active [[views|view]].
