PekWM is a stacking window manager for the X Window System, written in C++ by Claes Nästen, and highly configurable. The code is based on the aewm++ window manager, but it has evolved enough that it no longer resembles aewm++ at all. It also has an expanded feature-set, including window grouping (similar to Ion3, PWM, or Fluxbox), auto properties, xinerama and keygrabber that supports keychains, and much more.

Features[edit]

Here are major features of PekWM:

  • Grouping windows in a single frame (tabbed windows)
  • Keychains (multi-level keybindings)
  • Mouse actions
  • Root- and window-menus and keybindings for all menus
  • Dynamic menus that regenerate on every view from a script output
  • Multi-screen support via both XRandR and Xinerama
  • Support for window placement
  • Theming support with images, shaping and configurable buttons.
  • Autoproperties (automatic properties such as a window's sticky state, etc.)
