NAME

    i3-save-tree - save (parts of) the layout tree for restoring

 

SYNOPSIS

    i3-save-tree [--workspace=name|number] [--output=name]

 

DESCRIPTION

Dumps a workspace (or an entire output) to stdout. The data is supposed to be edited a bit by a human, then later fed to i3 via the append_layout command.

The append_layout command will create placeholder windows, arranged in the layout the input file specifies. Each container should have a swallows specification. When a window is mapped (made visible on the screen) that matches the specification, i3 will put it into that place and kill the placeholder.

If neither argument is specified, the currently focused workspace will be used.  

OPTIONS

--workspace=name|number
Specifies the workspace that should be dumped, e.g. 1. This can either be a name or the number of a workspace.
--output=name
Specifies the output that should be dumped, e.g. LVDS-1.
