Which tiling window manager would you recommend that's flexible with different monitor setups?
I'm gonna be using 3 screens at home, but only my laptop while on the go. BSPWM is comfy, but kinda limited in multi-monitor support.
I was looking at awesome but not sure?

@f0x i3 has workspaces per monitor, you can configure workspaces 1-3 to be on monitor A, 4 and 5 on monitor B and so on… When you disconnect a monitor, the workspaces on it are reassigned to another monitor, and when you plug it back in, the workspaces are assigned back. The catch is, you have to call xrandr or similar after disconnecting / connecting to inform i3 of the change.

@tastytea hmm maybe I will just go back to i3 after all these years
