ewmh 0.1.3

python implementation of Extended Window Manager Hints, based on Xlib

Package Documentation

An implementation of EWMH (Extended Window Manager Hints) for python, based on Xlib. It allows EWMH-compliant window managers (most modern WMs) to be queried and controlled.

pyewmh is distributed under the GNU Lesser General Public License, version 3, or, at your option, any later version. See LICENSE.txt for more information.


With Python 3, simply:

pip install ewmh

Unfortunately for Python 2 users, you will have to manually install the required dependency Xlib from, until the xlib developers upload a Python 2 version to PyPi.

Once this is done, just

python install


Online documentation is available here:
