i3-save-tree - save (parts of) the layout tree for restoring
i3-save-tree [--workspace=name|number] [--output=name]
Dumps a workspace (or an entire output) to stdout. The data is supposed to be edited a bit by a human, then later fed to i3 via the append_layout command.
The append_layout command will create placeholder windows, arranged in the layout the input file specifies. Each container should have a swallows specification. When a window is mapped (made visible on the screen) that matches the specification, i3 will put it into that place and kill the placeholder.
If neither argument is specified, the currently focused workspace will be used.
