Highlight the focused window
This module can be useful to spatially keep track of windows if you have large and/or multiple screens, and are therefore likely to have several windows visible at any given time. It highlights the currently focused window by covering other windows and the desktop with either a subtle ("overlay" mode) or opaque ("isolate" mode) overlay; additionally it can highlight windows as they're shown or hidden via a brief flash, to help determine their location intuitively (to avoid having to studiously scan all your screens when, for example, you know you triggered a dialog but it didn't show up where you expected it).
By default, overlay mode is disabled - you can enable it with
hs.window.highlight.ui.overlay=true- and so are the window shown/hidden flashes - enable those with
hs.window.highlight.ui.flashDuration=0.3(or whatever duration you prefer). Isolate mode is always available and can be toggled manually via
hs.window.highlight.toggleIsolate()or automatically by passing an appropriate windowfilter (or a list of apps) to
