very small lightweight pure X11 window manager with tray and menus

Low resource Window manager ideal for older PCs. It uses a minimum of external libraries, thus very little memory, includes virtual screens, menubar and root-menu popup.

JWM is a window manager for the X11 Window System. JWM is written in C and uses only Xlib and (optionally) the shape extension and libXpm. It can support some MWM, GNOME, and WM Spec hints. The menu configuration files are managed in XML format.

Compared to other light WM, like FVWM or Openbox, the Jwm consumes considerably less memory while providing the same functionality.

Tags: Implemented in: C, User Interface: Graphical User Interface, X Window System, Role: role::program, scope::utility, Interface Toolkit: Athena Widgets, X Window System: x11::application, x11::window-manager
