  • dwm-flexipatch

    A dwm build with preprocessor directives to decide which patches to include during build time

    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
