It has several specific features, such as:

  • Binary space partitioning
  • dynamic mosaic
  • scratchpad
  • Low CPU usage
  • Easy to use
  • Support for multiple monitors
  • rounded edges And among others.

Below is an example video of Hyrland working:


You can build Hyprland from scratch, for that you will need the build dependencies:

And then just clone, compile and install:

git clone --recursive https://github.com/vaxerski/Hyprland
cd Hyrland
sudo make install

There are binary packages for Arch and NixOS see here more Details.


The configuration file follows the defaults and is in your home directory under ~/.config , so use the cloned project example to create one:

mkdir -p ~/.config/hypr
cp examples/hyprland.conf ~/.config/hypr/

Change the file settings as you wish, for more details see here and for the first steps go to this link.
