Description andydecleyre 2019-03-04 20:08:11 UTC
It would be very nice if this applet's icon were, when available, the icon for the currently active window, just as in https://github.com/psifidotos/applet-window-title . It could "fall back" to the currently used icon if no active window is detected.

I think this is clear, but let me know if it's not.

As it is, the icon alone doesn't convey much information, when it could, without taking up any additional space.

Very good idea.

applets/windowlist: rewrite

This rewrites the Window List applet, in order to
have simpler code, as well as having a more useful
design that tells the user what app is in focus.
