Module gears.geometry

Helper functions used to compute geometries.

When this module refer to a geometry table, this assume a table with at least an x, y, width and height keys and numeric values.

Functions

gears.geometry.rectangle.get_square_distance (geom, x, y) Get the square distance between a rectangle and a point.
gears.geometry.rectangle.get_closest_by_coord (list, x, y) Return the closest rectangle from list for a given point.
gears.geometry.rectangle.get_by_coord (list, x, y) Return the rectangle containing the [x, y] point.
gears.geometry.rectangle.get_in_direction (dir, recttbl, cur) Get the nearest rectangle in the given direction.
gears.geometry.rectangle.get_intersection (a, b) Get the intersect area between a and b.
gears.geometry.rectangle.area_remove (areas, elem) Remove an area from a list, splitting the space between several area that can overlap.


Functions

Methods
gears.geometry.rectangle.get_square_distance (geom, x, y)
Get the square distance between a rectangle and a point.
  • geom A rectangle
    • x number The horizontal coordinate
    • y number The vertical coordinate
    • width number The rectangle width
    • height number The rectangle height
  • x number X coordinate of point
  • y number Y coordinate of point

Returns:

    number The squared distance of the rectangle to the provided point
gears.geometry.rectangle.get_closest_by_coord (list, x, y)
Return the closest rectangle from list for a given point.
  • list table A list of geometry tables.
  • x number The x coordinate
  • y number The y coordinate

Returns:

    The key from the closest geometry.
gears.geometry.rectangle.get_by_coord (list, x, y)
Return the rectangle containing the [x, y] point.

Note that if multiple element from the geometry list contains the point, the returned result is nondeterministic.

  • list table A list of geometry tables.
  • x number The x coordinate
  • y number The y coordinate

Returns:

    The key from the closest geometry. In case no result is found, nil is returned.
gears.geometry.rectangle.get_in_direction (dir, recttbl, cur)
Get the nearest rectangle in the given direction. Every rectangle is specified as a table with x, y, width, height keys, the same as client or screen geometries.
  • dir string The direction, can be either up, down, left or right.
  • recttbl table A table of rectangle specifications.
  • cur table The current rectangle.

Returns:

    The index for the rectangle in recttbl closer to cur in the given direction. nil if none found.
gears.geometry.rectangle.get_intersection (a, b)
Get the intersect area between a and b.
  • a The area.
    • x number The horizontal coordinate
    • y number The vertical coordinate
    • width number The rectangle width
    • height number The rectangle height
  • b The other area.
    • x number The horizontal coordinate
    • y number The vertical coordinate
    • width number The rectangle width
    • height number The rectangle height

Returns:

    table The intersect area.
gears.geometry.rectangle.area_remove (areas, elem)
Remove an area from a list, splitting the space between several area that can overlap.
  • areas table Table of areas.
  • elem Area to remove.
    • x number The horizontal coordinate
    • y number The vertical coordinate
    • width number The rectangle width
    • height number The rectangle height

Returns:

    The new area list.
