dwm is a dynamic window manager for X. It manages windows in tiled and
floating layouts. Either layout can be applied dynamically, optimizing
the environment for the application in use and the task performed. It
is the little brother of wmii.
In tiled layout, windows are managed in a master and stacking area.
The master area contains the windows which currently need most
attention, whereas the stacking area contains all other windows. In
floating layout, windows can be resized and moved freely. Dialog
windows are always managed floating, regardless of the layout
Windows are grouped by tags. Each window can be tagged with one or
multiple tags. Selecting certain tags displays all windows with those
dwm contains a small status bar which displays all available tags, the
layout, the title of the focused window, and the text read from the
name of the root window. The selected tags are highlighted with a
different color, while the tags of the focused window are highlighted
with a small point.
dwm draws a small border around windows to indicate their focus state.
