I would like shackle.el to manage the buffers created by WoMan.

Here's the configuration I'm using:

(use-package shackle
  :config
  (setq shackle-rules '((woman-mode :select t :align below :size 0.5)))
  (shackle-mode 1))

This should make WoMan buffers to appear on the bottom half of the screen.

But for some reason, shackle does not seem to work with the buffers created by WoMan (it works fine with other buffers, e.g., those that use help-mode). Any workaround?

I don't know why this doesn't work. It seems that using the buffer's name instead of woman-mode and adding :popup t works:

(use-package shackle
  :config
  (setq shackle-rules '(("\\`\\*WoMan .*\\*\\'" :select t :popup t :align below :size 0.5)))
  (shackle-mode 1))

  • I ran into the same problem the other day. Don't remember exactly what was the major mode I was trying to tame, but shackle only worked when I used the buffer name. So, this is not specific to woman-mode.
