Border widths

Dominik Schrempf
Hello,

is it possible to decrease border width when windows are adjacent?
E.g., if the border width is 1px, adjacent windows are separated by a
border of 2px while windows are separated by borders of size 1px from
the edges of the screen.

It would be nice to be able to merge borders between adjacent windows,
focusedBorderColor should have precedence such that windows facing a
focussed window actually do not have a border with normalBorderColor on
that side.

Thank you,
Dominik

No. Server-side borders are fixed width, always on all sides, and the only knobs are foreground and background colors, width, and stipple. If you want anything else, you get to figure out how to make xmonad a reparenting window manager so you can implement frame windows under your control.

You could also use something like X.L.Spacing as a workaround.
