feed2wmmenu is a tool to generate X11 window manager menus from RSS, ATOM, or other news feeds. It was inspired by "fvwm-menu-headlines", which generates static refreshed FVWM menus from RSS or other kinds of news feeds. The drawback of the FVWM related script is the use of simple regular expressions. feed2wmmenu polls the feeds using curl, utilizing the Last-Modified header so that the feeds are potentially not fetched if they didn't change since the last poll. It produces diverse output formats by using corresponding XSLT stylesheets.
Lunchbox is a dynamic tiling window manager for X11. It allows windows to be resized by squishing them against the edge of the screen. In a step away from the desktop metaphor, all programs are given a separate workspace and unique arrangement of windows, and any window can become the desktop. It offers an in-built scalable tab replacement called the Title Menu, which allows any window to be swapped with any other window that fits, allowing very fine grained control over the layout of the screen. Finally, although many windows default to tiling, any window can be changed to a Floating mode, which dialog boxes default to.
x9wm is a clone or fork of the 9wm and w9wm X window managers. It is a light alternative for the Mac OS X desktop. All of its source code is contained in a single file. It supports an alterate red colored cursor. It is very light on resources, quite fast, very simple, and easy for long programming, editing, or Web work sessions. You can blend it with Nitrogen and Wbar to create a simple but elegant interface without iconic or stylistic clutter. It does not decorate windows with borders, and it is modal, controlled with the mouse.
