a window manager written in common lisp

Stumpwm is a window manager written entirely in Common Lisp. It attempts to be highly customizable while relying entirely on the keyboard for input.

It does not use any conventional GUI widgets, but offers hooks. If you make a change, just "re-eval" and everything is updated. These design decisions reflect the growing popularity of productive, customizable lisp based systems.

StumpWM manages windows the emacs way. It is also known as "the emacs of WMs."
