aspectresize ==========

Description

This patch you to resize the window with its aspect ratio remain constant, use moveresize patch for manual resize.

Usage

  1. Put the following aspectresize() function somewhere in your dwm.c, after the line which includes the config.h file:

      void
      aspectresize(const Arg *arg) {
      	/* only floating windows can be moved */
      	Client *c;
      	c = selmon->sel;
      	float ratio;
      	int w, h,nw, nh;
      
      	if (!c || !arg)
      		return;
      	if (selmon->lt[selmon->sellt]->arrange && !c->isfloating)
      		return;
      
      	ratio = (float)c->w / (float)c->h;
      	h = arg->i;
      	w = (int)(ratio * h);
      
      	nw = c->w + w;
      	nh = c->h + h;
      
      	XRaiseWindow(dpy, c->win);
      	resize(c, c->x, c->y, nw, nh, True);
      }
  2. Add a aspectresize() function definition in dwm.c below the line:

    static void aspectresize(const Arg *arg);

  3. You can use Mod+Shift+j to increase size and Mod+Shift+k to decrease the size of client which respects client's aspect ratio:

{ MODKEY|ShiftMask,             XK_j,      aspectresize,   {.i = +24} },
{ MODKEY|ShiftMask,             XK_k,      aspectresize,   {.i = -24} },
