What is subtle?\015\012\015\012subtle is a manual tiling window manager with a rather uncommon approach of tiling: Instead of a bunch of predefined layouts, windows are placed on customizeable positions (called gravities) inside of a grid. The user can freely modify gravity definitions and assign gravities to windows either manually or via tags rules in the config.\015\012\015\012Another unique concept is the strict tagging: Unlike other tiling window managers, subtle doesn't allow weak tagging and always maps windows to virtual desktops (called views) with the appropriate tags regardless of the current active view.\015\012\015\012{{column(:start, width: 40%; vertical-align: top)}}\015\012\015\012h2.
