Freshmeat page:


Kahakai is a fork of the Waimea window manager, with the intent to create a language agnostic scriptable window manager, while maintaining the original features of Waimea, and extending upon them. Kahakai is pronounced with the 'ca' in car, the 'ha' in hard, and 'ki' from kite.

By "language agnostic", we mean that the scripts which control actions in the window manager are not language specific, they can be written in any language supported by SWIG. For starters, we plan on supporting Python with the addition of Ruby and Perl shortly thereafter.Kahakai currently supports Python scripting.

New Advogato Features

New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.

Keep up with the latest Advogato features by reading the Advogato status blog.

If you're a C programmer with some spare time, take a look at the mod_virgule project page and help us with one of the tasks on the ToDo list!
