    u/BaigGam3rss I still have some work to do to make my own widgets but you probably start with the documentation [1][2]. And then look at some other projects that use Awesome API to build widgets (ex: [3][4][5][6][7]).

  • Newbie to window manager, why use awesome over other dynamic wm ?
    6 projects | /r/awesomewm | 20 Dec 2022
    Awesome is very different from other window managers...It's a framework window manager! Through its API you can create widgets that are not possible in other WMs (ex: [1],[2],[3].[4]). Furthermore, AwesomeWM can be used as a tiling window managers and as a stacking window managers (like XFCE).

    KwesomeDE - as well as implementing what seems like his own animations and reinventing a few more wheels than I think will practically ever work outside his own system, though thoroughly interesting.
