Dwm - decide which patch you need

You have problems to decide which patches you need for your build of dwm? No problem.

Here is how to:

https://github.com/bakkeby/dwm-flexipatch

Try it out, then build, patch and recompile dwm from source. (to have your OWN dwm and learn how to use it.)

The header file in that repo makes my brain hurt XD, I try to keep it simple but to each their own.

@natemaia “The header file in that repo makes my brain hurt” --> same here! :joy:

But i think, for people who want to test various patches they can install “dwm_flexipatch” and test the patches. How they look and feel and what patches he/she likes or not. Then they can uninstall this “dwm_flexipatch” monster and install dwm from source.

Your “dwm_mini” looks interesting. I try it out.

I haven’t used the mini branch since I got rid of my dual monitor setup but you’re welcome to it. Fair warning though my side branches are pretty far from the dwm base.
