More configuration information coming soon.
For now, see the well commented default config distributed with alopex or read about the command strings below
Configuration Table of Contents:
Alopex commands are made up of strings of words.
Each word is a string of non-whitespace characters that represents a single action. A word can specify an optional target window, an action, and any optional parameters for that action.
Target windows are specified by starting the word with a w followed by a number from 0 to 9 to specify a marked window. In the absence of a targetted window, the currently focused client is used as a default target. Some actions will behave differently if provided with the focused window as a target or provided no explicit target (e.g., see tag actions). A w1 followed by an action and w followed by the action are equivalent: they specify the currently focused window as an explicit target.
