Searching the PureOS repo on https://software.pureos.net/categories didn't show any results for i3 i3wm or sway. It's debian so I assume it's possible if I add a repo but I'd prefer to use official.

The PureOS website is a bit confusing. The search on https://software.pureos.net/categories will not found i3 or sway, the "Find a package" search on https://software.pureos.net/suites will:

On the site which you link there are i3, i3-wm, and sway. The last one starts with PureOS "byzantium" while the rest are also available in "amber".


You can install i3 on PureOS the same way as on Debian:

sudo apt install i3

Under PureOS "amber", this will install i3-wm with dependencies, such as i3status, i3lock, suckless-tools. After installing, logout, choose i3 session under the gear ⚙ menu, and login.
