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

    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.

    Luke's build of dwm

    I'm now trying out Luke Smith's dwm built on Arch. His build of dwm already utilize several patches and seems to be heavily customized. I tried to add the extrabar patch to it, but quickly noticed this is much more difficult than I thought:
