Switch to a different workspace, creating it if it doesn't already exist.

SwitchToWorkspace accepts two optional parameters:

  • name - the name of the workspace. If omitted, a randomly generated name will be chosen.
  • spawn - a SpawnCommand describing the command that should be started in the workspace if it doesn't already exist. If omitted, the default program will be spawned in the newly created workspace.
