About WMII Reforge project

WMII Reforge project tries to reincarnate WMII Window manager for X11, mostly by bugfixing and changing build system from bunch of make scripts to Meson build system


In order to build wmii you need the Xlib header files and libixp. xmessage is used by the default scripts. Libixp is availiable from this Fossil repository.

Things to make:

  • ⬜️ Write meson build scripts to be able to build existing sources,
  • ⬜️ Get rid of XLC_LOCALE
  • ⬜️ Get rid of libwmii-hack dependency.
