A while ago I got irritated how messy my i3 config file looked, and I researched alternative hotkey managers. I tried sxhkd and it is a fine piece of code. I got a much cleaner setup of the hotkeys and I could do stuff that i wasn’t able to do with i3. But a couple of days ago, i realized that my i3 config could be just as clean as sxhkd by using variables .

swedish keyboards

when I was working as a technical support agent I received several calls from angry men who couldn’t find the @ symbol on the keyboard. When I explained that they had to hold Alt-Gr and pressing 2 at the same time, they exploded with anger and told me to tell the technicians to make a new keyboard layout! I explained it’s an old standard and agreed it was stupid, but that it would probably never change.
