Still have to fix a few things like battery icon, browser vim keybindings and lemonbar tweaking (first time using anything other than dzen2 and conky, so I just got a script from Arch BBS).
Tried BSPWM before? It requires less configuration than i3 and AwesomeWM. The only thing I'm not too sure about is how it functions compared to DWM or HerbstluftWM, etc. since I haven't used those.
$ sudo pacman -S bspwm sxhkd
For some sort of top bar/dock/thingo you could use anything you like. Tint2 is an easy route to go, and is reliable especially for systrays, but the harder (and in my opinion more fun route) is lemonbar (especially with XFT support, thing is demonic without).
