9 Transitioning from GNOME, this was dearly missed. Thank you!

Alas, I experience sluggishness in all animations, to the degree that I would prefer to have them fully disabled.

There are some features I miss: KRunner integration, displaying desktops in a grid (not only a line), and Present Windows' option to close windows though mouse clicks.

3 It works, but turns my desktop into a sluggish, slow-as-molasses machine that gives me 90s flashbacks.

Same, and I think some windows contribute more to the slowness

9 Very useful! It would be awesome to have this included upstream.
Is there a way to assign it to a desktop corner, like the default present windows tool?

10 It's about time KDE got a decent overview :)
Keep up the good work! Parachute does exactly what I want and is near-perfect even though it's still only pre-release. I'm looking forward to no longer having to use CTRL+F8 and CTRL+F9 :)

Thanks! I don't know if Parachute can replace the effects that seem to be unbeatable in some ways, like the smoothness of the animations. But I am also satisfied with the results so far.

I think maybe it can become a good alternative on more powerful machines, capable of running animations smoothly even with many windows open.

@emvaized, I don't know why but I was unable to directly reply to your comment. Well, I don't know if it would be worth trying to implement this with some limitations imposed on KWin scripts.

@tcorreabr Sad to hear... Anyway, your script is very great! Thanks for your work.

Hi!
Seems like you took inspiration from Windows 10 task view :)
Looks very great! Could you please try to create something similar to Windows 10's snap assist?
E.g. show parachute when snapping windows to side, like on this picture: https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/proxy/oXgG3ZfNlkyZLRTlV77vR6hynXYpLFq7UvOQh5k_5kl6q_e54iChlRaCYrKZrcUoM2-1QMlOrsKeDxhmu-IP3czugeyZgMKT-Zqky7M1m1Bbaet41jlGRymxPQ

10 This is a solid Kwin Script! This does exactly what it claims to and it looks great as well. There are some issues but its super early days so it is very impressive how well it works on such a short project lifespan. Please, keep it up! I am loving it so far!

Am I missing something? I added it in the KDE system setting, but pressing ctrl+alt+w doesn't do anything nor do I find a shortcut setting. I also tried to install it manually from github. What is it called in the shortcut settings?

Does it appear as enabled in the kwin script list? The name of the shortcut in global shortcuts is Parachute.

9 excellent I prefer this over the default desktop overview. Only some animations aren't 100% smooth. I wold also like to see integrated krunner or start menu because now I have 3 shortcuts (start, krunner, parachute) and IMO it could easily be reduce to 2 or, with more effort, even to 1.

10 the best I've been waiting for this! I used KWinOverview for a while, then the dev didn't have time to improve it and it was kinda buggy, but seeing this made me really happy. This is the best thing I've seen for months. Kudos and keep up the development! I hope it gets into mainstream Plasma one day! If you want it, I could make a plasmod for it that opens it through DBus. Similar to Present Windows plasmoid. I can also make a symbolic icon which would look nice with Breeze.
