i3 window manager extensions

i3 is a tiling window manager for advanced Linux users. This note introduces some handy extensions to i3:

  • a file-manager extension with a proper workflow,
  • an exit-mode extension and
  • a pass-through-mode extension.

The extensions can be enabled by appending some lines of code to the i3 configuration file etc/i3/conf. The following explains theses changes. A complete configuration sample can be downloaded here.
