sway: tiling on wayland

I’ve been using sway on Wayland the last few days. It tries to be i3 compatible and has an impressive list of features supported already, most notably the (still from time to time crashing) statusbar. The best part is, that sway is being actively developed, so a hand full of good fixes, commits and pull requests arrive every day!

X11 applications can be started on sway through XWayland and don’t look different from other programs.

There are also other tiling WMs for Wayland, the most promising ones being velox and orbment. But they are not as actively developed, don’t support a custom wallpaper (sorry, that’s important for me!) and do not aim for i3 compatibility.
