quickswitch-i3 1.0

Quickly change to and locate windows in i3

Latest Version: 2.1


This utility for i3, inspired by Pentadactyl’s :buffers command, allows you to quickly switch to and locate windows on all your workspaces, using an interactive dmenu prompt.

Here’s how it looks in action:


quickswitch requires dmenu (which you likely already have installed), and i3-py, which you can install with pip install i3-py.

quickswitch was tested in Python 2.7.3 and 3.2.3.


Quickswitch has a PyPI entry, so you can install it with pip install quickswitch-i3. Alternatively, you can always manually run the setup file with python install.

Additionally, if you are an Arch user, you can install it from the AUR. The package is called quickswitch-i3. The PKGBUILD is also included here.
