  • [dwm] Vanitygasp per tag?
    5 projects | /r/suckless | 14 Mar 2022
    I surfed the net a bit, but couldn't find this particular patch. Either I'm blind or it doesn't exist. Although, I've managed to find this, but it seems there's no addition of vanitygaps(gappih, gappoh, gappiv, gappov etc..) to pertag functions. There's also this, but again no mention of vanity gaps in pertag functions. Nevertheless, I'll see if it works in case I'm really blind.
