Top 23 Dwm Open-Source Projects

  • OnTopReplica

    A real-time always-on-top “replica” of a window of your choice (on Windows).

    Project mention: Is there an extension that crops a portion of a web page and can display it in a frameless window? | reddit.com/r/chrome_extensions | 2023-01-16

    You can check out OnTopReplica, it's an old app that isn't currently maintained but the last install works still. I use it off and on. Only thing is that you would need to keep those pages you want to monitor opened and not minimized as the live replica cannot replicate windows that are not opened.

  • chadwm

    Making dwm as beautiful as possible!

    Project mention: How can I make each individual tag a different color? | reddit.com/r/dwm | 2023-01-09

    Hi i don't know the answers but i can guide from where to find the one I suggest you to look at unixporn if someone doing the same you can look at there code and can compare the code with official dwm code by "meld" application Also you can look what peaches they had applied Also you can look at https://github.com/siduck/chadwm this GitHub and compare your code to this code by meld and look at there peaches in readme (i believe don't tell the technique instead teach how to fine one) maybe this is how I'm answering your all future question 🤠

  • dwm-flexipatch

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

    Project mention: Newbie to window manager, why use awesome over other dynamic wm ? | reddit.com/r/awesomewm | 2022-12-20

    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

  • jgmenu

    An X11 menu

    Project mention: A little bit confused about window managers | reddit.com/r/archlinux | 2022-11-24

    rofi or dmenu are often used and I can recommend them too. These programs are graphical that can be used to build your own menu with a few options and arguments. They also have some functionality to show you installed programs on your system and execute it. Qtile itself have such a functionality too: DmenuRun . And there is a menu program that will list applications like KDE startmenu with categories does in example: jgmenu

  • tmux-tilish

    Plugin which makes tmux work and feel like i3wm

    Project mention: tmux-tilit : better tiling for tmux 🪟🪓 | dev.to | 2023-01-11

    tmux-tilit was inspired by tmux-tilish. I wanted to add some new commadns, make the keybindings match better with tmux's defaults, hence tilit was born!

  • azote

    Wallpaper and colour manager for Sway, i3 and some other WMs

    Project mention: swaywm color picker | reddit.com/r/swaywm | 2022-05-01

    azote works partly - correct color picking inside azote's main window only. other windows - gray color.

    Project mention: Hey everyone, I'm trying to get rid of Calamares installer. What do you think about this, would you mind if it's a TUI installer? It takes user info, asks partition names - LUKS enabled or not and only supports LVM. Is this fine, or does it look its from 1970 unix days :D | reddit.com/r/linux | 2023-01-16
  • patches

    Collection of patches for dwm, st and dmenu (by bakkeby)

    Project mention: Window Border Gone after Fullscreen toggle | reddit.com/r/suckless | 2022-12-20

    I've patched dwm-fullscreen-compilation-6.3 form the almighty /u/bakkeby, but now window borders are gone when toggled fullscreen on and off. I'm not sure where the issue is. Maybe because I had selectivefakefullscreen applied and didn't remove it cleanly enough. Can someone nudge me to the solution?

    Project mention: dwmblocks doesn't show up anywhere | reddit.com/r/suckless | 2022-11-08

    I use this version of dwmblocks https://github.com/ashish-yadav11/dwmblocks.

  • dwmblocks-async

    My custom build of dwmblocks which updates blocks asynchronously.

    Project mention: dwmblocks doesn't show up anywhere | reddit.com/r/suckless | 2022-11-08

    Ah yes, correct. The dwmblocks-async author says statuscmd is needed on https://github.com/UtkarshVerma/dwmblocks-async for clickable blocks. I did pull that in a while ago into my dwm code, but forgot that it's only needed there for clicking. Good call!

  • modwm

    This is old-school tool for taking screenshots without bloatware features, simple as life, light as air.

    Project mention: Share your greatest free tools | reddit.com/r/sysadmin | 2022-04-17

    I also like free shoter for my open-source, simple screenshoting tool. Although I do love greenshot. free shooter is jsut so simple and easy to use. I forget it's not part of Windows.
