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.

How can you tell if a distro is bug free and considered stable?

If you don't like the looks of WM's even if you replaced the bar with something more blingy like eww: https://github.com/elkowar/eww then you simply should not waste your time by banging your head into the wall.

With rise of wayland, are simpler window managers dying?
14 projects | reddit.com/r/linux | 26 Aug 2022
I'm seriously considering finally making the move to Wayland soley because of Hyprland. I used SWAY a bit awhile back, but ended up ditching it because I couldn't get HiDPI scaling working right. Currently, I run a mix of LeftWM and BSPWM. I had been following the (Hyprland) project for awhile, but just recently saw a page in their wiki on the "Dwindle Layout", which supposedly splits like BSPWM. I recently switched from polybar to eww which is suppose to work on Wayland too, which would reduce the need for re-ricing a bit. IMHO, the bottom line for those of us who prefer to avoid running full DEs, I think wlroots is going to make or break Wayland.
