I3-CONFIG-WIZARD(1)		   i3 Manual		   I3-CONFIG-WIZARD(1)

NAME
       i3-config-wizard	- creates a keysym based config	based on your layout

SYNOPSIS
       i3-config-wizard	[-s socket] [-m	modifier] [-v] [-h]

OPTIONS
       -s, --socket socket
	   Overwrites the path to the i3 IPC socket.

       -m, --modifier modifier
	   Generates the configuration file headlessly.	Accepts	win or alt.

       -v, --version
	   Display version number and exit.

       -h, --help
	   Display a short help	message	and exit.

FILES
   /etc/i3/config.keycodes
       This file contains the default configuration with keycodes. All the
       bindcode	lines will be transformed to bindsym and the user-specified
       modifier	will be	used.

DESCRIPTION
       i3-config-wizard	is started by i3 in its	default	config,	unless
       /.i3/config exists. i3-config-wizard creates a keysym based i3 config
       file (based on /etc/i3/config.keycodes) in /.i3/config.

       The advantage of	using keysyms is that the config file is easy to read,
       understand and modify. However, if we shipped with a keysym based
       default config file, the	key positions would not	be consistent across
       different keyboard layouts (take	for example the	homerow	for movement).
       Therefore, we ship with a keycode based default config and let the
       wizard transform	it according to	your current keyboard layout.
