Automatically map named workspaces to numbers

I am using named workspaces most of the time. Is there any way to automatically number them in a consecutive fashion so that I can use meta+<number> to switch to individual ones.

What I want to prevent is having to set the number manually. So I suspect some kind of script would be necessary which automatically creates the implicit numbering.

I think you need named workspace with number prefix . Check 6.5.1. Named workspaces If you dislike number prefix, you can strip them
