Bare display

A "bare" display mode has been added. This special mode displays only the current buffer, and no bars around (no title, nicklist, status, input, ...).
It is designed for easy selection of text and click on long URLs (which are not broken at the end of lines, because ncurses is disabled in this mode).

A new key has been added: alt-"l" (use /key missing to add the key), or this command: /key bind meta-l /window bare.
You can also use a delay in seconds with command /window bare, for example 5 seconds: /window bare 5.

Two options have been added:

  • weechat.look.bare_display_exit_on_input (default: on): by default any changes in input will return to standard display
  • weechat.look.bare_display_time_format (default: "%H:%M"): the format of time used in bare display.

Bare display looks like this (click for full size):
