Although it is easy to get it up and running, configuration is not. The configuration is done in Lua, which is a script language, so it requires some skills in programming.

The most important default keybindigs are:

  • Super-s: show keybindings
  • Super-Enter: open a new terminal
  • Shift-Super-q: quit
  • Super-Tab: Go to prev./next Window
