dmenu - dynamic menu

dmenu is an efficient dynamic menu for X. And originally developed by suckless.org engineers.

This fork is patched with XFT, focus, fuzzymatch, opacity and other patches. It also includes extra features like:

  • dmenu_app executable, which solarizes dmenu and sorts results by most hits.
  • dmenu_run uses dmenu_app to find executable and run it.
  • dmenu_workspace
