DockApp Graphics Library
WMApp is a C++ based library for writing WindowMaker-style dockapps. To write a dockapp, it is generally necessary to perform some magic Xlib incantations, supply a clipping mask, and set up X event checking. Like larger graphics libraries such as GTK+ and Qt, WMApp automates this process by providing the classes and functions necessary for widget creation and callbacks. The library provides numerous widgets, all with the traditional dockapp appearance. Many common dockapps could already be rewritten to use this library.
