i3-save-tree







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


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

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.



−−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.
