Sawmill is an extensible window manager using an Emacs Lisp-like
scripting language--all window decorations are configurable and all
user-interface policy is controlled through the Lisp language. This
is no layer on top of twm, but a wholly new architecture.
Despite this extensibility its policy is currently very minimal
compared to most window managers--no icons, desktop backgrounds,
sliding windows, sound effects, or whatever.
All high-level wm functions are implemented in Lisp for future
extensibility or redefinition. Currently this includes menus (using
GTK+), interactive window moving and resizing, virtual workspaces,
iconification, focus/transient window policies, frame theme
definitions, and many more standard window-manager functions.
User-configuration is possible either by writing Lisp code in a
personal .sawmillrc file, or through the integrated customization
system (using GTK+, see the third and fourth screenshots below).
A few themes are included, most mimic the window frames of particular
Enlightenment themes (and this is where the images originated).
This looks nice.
