bbconf is a GUI configurator for the Blackbox window manager. It's written in C++ and Qt, and uses plugins for extensibility. bbconf is distributed with 4 plugins, and replaces the previously separate Blackbox/bbkeys configurators called toolbox and bbkeysconf. The plugins that come with bbconf are: a theme editor (which replaces toolbox), a keybinding editor modelled after the KDE keybinding editor (which replaces bbkeysconf), a preferences editor for bbconf itself, and a Blackbox menu editor. As time permits, more plugins will be written for bbconf that will allow configuration of all aspects of Blackbox sessions, including Blackbox's rc-file, bbpager, etc.
