Running nested X11 dwm sessions

I have been using Xephyr and dwm for a while in a nested X11 session, and I grew sick and tired of having all the weird aliases in my bashrc and decided to make a little project that handles this for me in a nicer way.

It's not really an ideal situation, but I do like having Gnome around with all its niceties it brings. A lot of this stuff could be achieved with tmux for sure. I'm not arguing that. I use tmux extensively as well. But since I've been using dwm for a long time, this kind of marries the best of both world for me.

Maybe this would vibe with some of you.

Thanks for any feedback or comments.


Looks like a useful tool if you want the best of both worlds! I don't use tiling window managers anymore, but just wanted to say thanks for sharing your application!
