System 59 is a basic window system together with a basic terminal emulator. It can be a comfortable programming environment if Vim and Bash are all you need to be productive.
System 59 is written in C, runs on Linux, and has few runtime dependencies (systemd-logind, libsystemd, libudev, libdrm).
Here are the user-commands implemented by System 59:
|META+TAB||Move focus to the next window.|
|META+1||Move focus to workspace 1.|
|META+2||Move focus to workspace 2.|
|META+3||Move focus to workspace 3.|
|META+4||Move focus to workspace 4.|
|META+F1||Switch to VT 1.|
|META+F2||Switch to VT 2.|
|META+F3||Switch to VT 3.|
|META+F4||Switch to VT 4.|
|META+T||Start a terminal emulator in the focused window.|
|META+G||Start an application launcher in the focused window.|
Here are the message types in the System 59 client-server protocol:
