window-stacking Wayland compositor


Labwc is a wlroots-based window-stacking compositor for wayland, inspired by openbox.

It is light-weight and independent with a focus on simply stacking windows well and rendering some window decorations. It takes a no-bling/frills approach and says no to features such as icons (except window buttons), animations, decorative gradients and any other options not required to reasonably render common themes. It relies on clients for panels, screenshots, wallpapers and so on to create a full desktop environment.
