wmm, the Window Manager Manager, is a utility to simplify testing your freshly hacked window manager. It opens a small window containing one or more buttons. When a button is clicked, a command is executed.
The window manager managing feature is that if wmm is iconified by the running window manager it will be mapped when the window manager exits or crashes. When wmm detects that it has been mapped it will raise itself to the top of all the other windows. This ensures that it will be possible to click on one of its buttons to start another window manager, and thus be able to fix the bug which lurked in your window manager.
wmm is configured with
~/.wmmrc. For each non-blank line, not
starting with a #, wmm will create a button. Each line should consist
of two tab-separated fields, the first is the button label and the
second is the command to run when the button is clicked (it should
probably end with an
& so WMM isn't locked). If the second field
is missing, wmm will instead quit when the button is clicked.
