i3 or I3wm is a fixed tiling WM.
This is a simple way to lock the session. Most lock scripts have a fancy way to take a picture of the desktop apply some effects and then use i3lock to show that file. The
scrot command requires scrot to be installed, and the
mogrify command requires ImageMagick to be installed.

Depending on your setup there can be some conflicts with other tiling WM
sxhkd is a core part of bspwm and if you run both on same system your i3
bindsym will not work because sxhkd, so make sure to kill sxhkd before starting an i3 session.
