Multiplexing general windows similar to terminator

It's been a while now, and deciding was hard (basically had other stuff on my mind lately), but I think I'll have some red pills. Probably will need more than one so they can act fast.If you could recommend some good documentation, it would be great! I will most likely not be able to start doing this for a couple more weeks, but having some starting point will provide some peace of mind.

read up on building a window manager. :)

you take the blue pill, story ends. you wake up in your bed and avoid the hell
that is window management, and believe whatever you want to believe. you take
the red pill, you stay in window manager land, and i show you how deep the
rabbit hole goes.
