Firefox kills DWM

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.

For different system monitors, there are also different approaches. I just use `slstatus` (https://github.com/drkhsh/slstatus). I've heard a lot of good stuff about Eww (https://github.com/elkowar/eww) but never tried it myself.
What are some alternatives?

eww - ElKowars wacky widgets
