Assign a workspace to a specific Output (Display)
In order to configure i3 to assign a workspace to a given monitor, first find the device name for the monitor you wish to use
$ xrandr --listmonitors Monitors: 1 0: +*eDP-1 1920/309x1080/173+0+0 eDP-1
In this case, the output name is
eDP-1. Next add a line like this into a staged copy of your i3 config file:
workspace "$ws1" output DP1
Log back in for the changes to take effect.
