dwm is a dynamic window manager for X. It manages windows in tiled, monocle and floating layouts.

dwm is one of the suckless suite of tools and is only a single binary. It is very lightweight and its source code is intended to never exceed 2000 SLOC.

dwm is customized through editing its source code, which makes it extremely fast and secure — it does not process any input data which isn't known at compile time, except window titles and status text read from the root window's name.
