Changed "switch view" snippet to remove the bug when clients are sticky

Snippets\015\012\015\012This page shows small snippets that might be useful. Without further instructions they just need to be copied into the config of subtle.\015\012\015\012{{>toc}}\015\012\015\012h2. Alt-Tab\015\012\015\012This cycles through windows of view\015\012\015\012

\015\012\015\012Finally make some use of this like following hook:\015\012\015\012
{{hide}}\015\012on :view_jump do |v|\015\012  v.visits += 1 rescue v.visits = 1\015\012  puts "View %s, %d visits" % [, v.visits ]\015\012end\015\012
\015\012\015\012h2. Focus gravities\015\012\015\012Focus window a specific gravities on view.\015\012\015\012

\015\012\015\012h2. Move windows\015\012\015\012This snippet adds nine grabs to move windows on the fly to nine defined views. It uses tagging for this, creates tags based on the view names and applies them when needed.\015\012\015\012
{{hide}}\015\012on :start do\015\012  # Create missing tags\015\012  views = { |v| }\015\012  tags  = { |t| }\015\012\015\012  views.each do |v|\015\012    unless tags.include?(v)\015\012      t =\015\012\015\012    end\015\012  end\015\012end\015\012\015\012# Add nine C-< number> grabs\015\012(1..9).each do |i|\015\012 grab "C-%d" % [ i ] do |c|\015\012   views = Subtlext::View.all\015\012   names = { |v| }\015\012\015\012   # Sanity check\015\012   if i <= views.size\015\012     # Tag client\015\012     tags = c.tags.reject { |t| names.include?( or "default" == }\015\012     tags << names[i - 1]\015\012\015\012     c.tags = tags\015\012\015\012     # Tag view\015\012     views[i - 1].tag(names[i - 1])\015\012   end\015\012 end\015\012end\015\012
\015\012\015\012h2. Current view\015\012\015\012This snippet works similar to the previous, it adds tags based on the view names. When there is an untagged window (a window with the default tag only) it adds the name of the current view as tag, which effectively moves the window to the current view.\015\012\015\012
{{hide}}\015\012on :start do\015\012  # Create missing tags\015\012  views = { |v| }\015\012  tags  = { |t| }\015\012\015\012  views.each do |v|\015\012    unless tags.include?(v)\015\012      t =\015\012\015\012    end\015\012  end\015\012end\015\012\015\012# Assign tags to clients\015\012on :client_create do |c|\015\012  view = Subtlext::View.current\015\012  tags = { |t| }\015\012\015\012  # Add tag to view\015\012  view.tag( unless(view.tags.include?(\015\012\015\012  # Exclusive for clients with default tag only\015\012  if tags.include?("default") and 1 == tags.size\015\012    c.tags = [ ]\015\012  end\015\012end\015\012
\015\012\015\012h2. Scratchpad\015\012\015\012The scratchpad snippet is just a small hack of the tagging. Normally subtle doesn't allow to create a window without tags, so that it's never visible. This grab just creates a urxvt, strips all tags and sets sticky. On the next press it just toggles sticky and blends the window in and out, like a scratchpad.\015\012\015\012
{{hide}}grab "A-b" do\015\012  if (c = Subtlext::Client.first("scratch"))\015\012    c.toggle_stick\015\012    c.focus\015\012  elsif (c = Subtlext::Client.spawn("urxvt -name scratch"))\015\012    c.tags  = [] \015\012    c.flags = [ :stick ]\015\012  end\015\012end\015\012
\015\012\015\012h2. Scratchstack\015\012\015\012Like the Scratchpad, this snippet can show and hide a client, but instead just one specific client, it can cycle through multiple running ones. There are basically three grabs:\015\012\015\012# Win-Keypad+ Adds a client to the stack and initially hides it\015\012# Win-Keypad- Removes a client fromt he stack and retags it\015\012# Win-comma Cycles through the clients on the stack\015\012\015\012

\015\012\015\012h2. Check config\015\012\015\012In case you keep forgetting to run subtle -k after changing the config this might be handy for you. It checks the config, displays a message via xmessage or just reloads the config.\015\012\015\012

\015\012\015\012h2. Switch view\015\012\015\012Allow you to go to the next non-empty view. very useful when you don't want :ViewNext to go into hidden views (Mostly with dynamic views)\015\012\015\012
