bl-hotcorners and rtile

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zg-oGOwlFEw

Playing around with bl-hotcorners with the following rc

[Hot Corners]
top_left_corner_command = tile --all
top_right_corner_command = tile --cycle
bottom_left_corner_command = tile --swap
bottom_right_corner_command = 

tile=rtile. And it feels a bit laggy, any tips for improving speed?

bl-hotcorners has "check_intervall = 0.2" and various "time.sleep(xx)" functions. Perhaps you can tweak those delays?

Re: bl-hotcorners and rtile

Interesting this came up today.

Just yesterday I was revisiting bl-hotcorners and previous dev discussions, decided that nobody was using it and dropped it from the Lithium bunsen-utilities.  yikes
It was due for a rewrite, but was abandoned.

Should it go back in again, with the existing code?

(The related bl-aerosnap was buggy and dropped a long time ago.)

Maybe Unia just needs a gentle nudge?

Re: bl-hotcorners and rtile

I guess rtile is not extremly fast to start with (ancient machine thought)

time tile --all  
tile --all  0.17s user 0.06s system 58% cpu 0.401 total

time tile --all
tile --all  0.16s user 0.06s system 67% cpu 0.335 total

time tile --cycle
tile --cycle  0.18s user 0.06s system 58% cpu 0.404 total

So I have about 0.4s delay before something new can happen?

Just saw the thread.

Is bl-hotcorners still alive?

I'm still using it wink

Trying it now: slightly more cpu usage though, but both of them have minimal mem use on my machine. lwa-hot-corners polls the mouse position every few millisecs, and I can't see where to change that in the code before compiling.
bl-hotcorners has check_intervall = and time.sleep() values which can be adjusted in the script. (It should be relatively easy to add script args to adjust polling interval, bounce distance etc)

Somehow I keep missing the posts which mention me.
I forget the last thing I was writing if I don't log in or a few days.

Preety good hot corner launcher in my opinion.

Did you see my enhancements? lwa-hot-corners: possible alternative to bl-hotcorners. But multi-monitor setups are a problem, same as bl-hotcorners.

I saw, good catch on the update interval.
I would complain on github, create an issue but don't have multi monitor setup.

So that's what they are for. smile
Small letters and blue, blend in with the blue forum theme are difficult to spot.
How would I know? They could be entirely for decorative purposes. lol

Tell @twoion that the colours are an issue for you, in the theme you are using. Try the Crunchbang theme - it hasn't got that problem wink

It's the only theme I can live with, to be honest.

Edited
