Announcing the first pre-release of Cage, the Wayland kiosk
« on: April 29, 2019, 01:45:36 am »
Hey everyone,

Today I released the first pre-release of Cage, my Wayland kiosk. A kiosk is a window manager (in the X11 world) or compositor (in the Wayland world) that is designed for a user experience wherein user interaction and activities outside the scope of the running application are prevented. That is, a kiosk compositor displays a single maximized application at a time and prevents the user from interacting with anything but this application.

Hence, Cage is quite a niche project and not something you'd use for your day-to-day computing. I hope some may find it interesting regardless, and I would love to hear any feedback or use-cases you may come up with :)

Curious, Is there a git page?   Arm?   For the transition to Buster I did entertain the idea of going to KDE or Sway to use Wayland, but  ... maybe in 2 years.  Bravo.
