Announcing the first pre-release of Cage, the Wayland kiosk


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 🙂

You can read the announcement here or you can read more about Cage in general on its project page.
