What are the DWM patches you can't live without?
2 projects | reddit.com/r/suckless | 3 Mar 2023
and i would recommend to use dwm-flexipatch, it makes the hole patching process very easy, and you can try out all the patches...
Firefox kills DWM
2 projects | reddit.com/r/suckless | 24 Feb 2023
I just wanted to add that if anyone is experiencing this issue and using dwm-flexipatch then enabling the patch BAR_NO_COLOR_EMOJI_PATCH may solve the issue.
Newbie to window manager, why use awesome over other dynamic wm ?
6 projects | reddit.com/r/awesomewm | 20 Dec 2022
a lot of functionality can be added with patches, but you have to try and juggle those all yourself (and work out any conflicts between them yourself) - there are some projects like dwm-flexipatch to try and make it easier to deal with them, but it's way more trouble than I am interested in
dwm-flexipatch: statuscmd integration in dwmblocks
2 projects | reddit.com/r/dwm | 30 Sep 2022
To better understand how statuscmd works, I took a step back and decided to try some experimentation before patching my own build: I compiled dwm-flexipatch (obviously with BAR_DWMBLOCKS_PATCH and BAR_STATUSCMD_PATCH set to 1), and tried it with my patched dwmblocks and modified one of my statusbar scripts accordingly for testing purpose:

[dwm] Vanitygasp per tag?
5 projects | reddit.com/r/suckless | 14 Mar 2022
I don't think I ever made a standalone patch for this, but you can derive what needs to be changed if you grep the dwm-flexipatch code base for PERTAG_VANITYGAPS_PATCH and have a look at what the changes are.
Is it possible to patch an already heavily patched & customized build of suckless program?
3 projects | reddit.com/r/suckless | 3 Mar 2022
I like and use dwm but it was becoming an overkill for me to mix and match patches, plus updating of dwm from git, I started using dwm-flexipatch from bakkeby, which I suggest you to try. He's incorporated many patches - all the ones I needed where there, which can be enabled/disabled very easily. A drawback is the config.h file: It's a bit intimidating at first, because it includes the possible options of all patches, enabled or not.3 projects | reddit.com/r/suckless | 3 Mar 2022
Master and Stack setup
5 projects | reddit.com/r/swaywm | 27 Feb 2023
There's a python script called stacki3 that works both on i3wm and sway. There is also a dwm clone for wayland called dwl.
I actually use linux because its objectively better
3 projects | reddit.com/r/linuxmasterrace | 23 Feb 2023
I currently use dwl which is much, much lighter than i3 and suits my needs. On my laptop I just don't have a window manager of any kind installed, I can get by with lynx and the TTY.

Help needed with Wayland (riverwm and dwl) on Void Linux
2 projects | reddit.com/r/voidlinux | 29 Jan 2023
I wanted to try two wayland compositors out (specifically dwl and river) and cannot for the life of me seem to get it working properly. I am currently doing this inside a VirtualBox vm.
Vote for which of the tiling window managers I should install on my system
2 projects | reddit.com/r/linuxmasterrace | 9 Jan 2023
If you want to surf the wave of future and use Wayland, then Dwm isn't possible. There's DWL but I never tried it. https://github.com/djpohly/dwl
Why use wayland over x11?

My Quest for the Perfect Window Manager
7 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 4 Jul 2022
awesomewm is more-or-less dwm with a lua interpreter and a config loader bolted on. someone has already made dwl, a wayland port of dwm: https://github.com/djpohly/dwl
the codebase is very similar to dwm. some dwm patches can even be applied directly.
i think the 'difficult' work has already been done.

Awesome window manager/desktop environment list
3 projects | reddit.com/r/linux | 20 Mar 2022
Not really. There are surprising number of wms missing from there, especially wayland compositors, including the one I'm using river(wm). Very surprised not see wayfire or dwl either.
