i3 and PyCharm: the uglyness that is the splash screen
I am running i3 on my machine. It makes me (maybe subjectively) more productive than something like KDE Plasma and suits my development workflow well. Recently I started working more with Python and started using PyCharm.
Though I am not focussed on having a perfect visual appearance rather than the workflow having the splash window forced into a tile made it look that ugly that I decided to find a solution.
Querying the window criteria for the splash screen it unveiled the following information:
[class="jetbrains-pycharm" id=109051949 instance="jetbrains-pycharm" title=" "]
Note the space in title. Other PyCharm windows looked like this:
[class="jetbrains-pycharm" id=109051975 instance="jetbrains-pycharm" title="Welcome to PyCharm"]
Easy enough? Something like this should work:
for_window [class="jetbrains-pycharm" title=" "] floating enable
Not quite. But close enough:
for_window [class="jetbrains-pycharm" title="^ $"] floating enable
