In ArchLabs we decided to take a fork from the official i3wm i.e. i3 next gaps hosted on github.

It allows us to have gaps and borders if we want. In this fashion we can see our wallpaper that is behind the windows. But we can decide to put the variables of borders and gaps on 0 and then we will have the original i3 without gaps or borders.

We can make the gaps as wide as we want and the same goes for the borders, that we can color as well.

In your config you will find that all the necessary info is put together.

# Settings for I3 next gap git

# delete or uncomment the following lines if you do not have it or do not
# want it
for_window [class="^.*"] border pixel 2
gaps inner 5
gaps outer 5
#smart_gaps on
#smart_borders on

You can change the size of the gaps or borders to any size. Like I have done here.
