What is subtle?\015\012\015\012subtle is a manual tiling window manager with a rather uncommon approach of tiling: Per default there is no typical layout enforcement, windows are placed on a position (gravity) in a custom grid. The user can change the gravity of each window either directly per grabs or with rules defined by tags in the config.\015\012\015\012Windows are visible on views - the virtual desktops in subtle - that have at least one tag in common.\015\012\015\012{{column(:start, width: 40%; vertical-align: top)}}\015\012\015\012h2.
