A nice feature to have is the ability to jump to an arbitrary window by performing a quick fuzzy search with just a few characters. We can achieve this by using Ratpoison’s flexibility and the fantastic FZF tool.

The window_select.sh script will do the trick using FZF


This will use Ratpoison to prompt for a fuzzy string and will take you immediately to the matched window.

But in order to invoke this, a Ratpoison mapping is required:

bind w exec window_select.sh fzf
