    herbstluftwm (abbreviated as hlwm, from German: herbstluft "autumn air"[3]) is a manual tiling window manager for X11 display manager on Linux operating system and its derivatives. It uses Xlib and GLib[4] system libraries, and is designed in a similar fashion to other minimalistic tiling window managers such as i3 and Musca intended to be configured manually by the user through configuration files using imperative directives.[5] hlwm supports workspaces in which individual windows can reside. It also supports multiple displays or computer monitors. It was first released in 2011 and is now in its 0.7 version as of the latest 2016 release being maintained on GitHub.

    It is free and open-source software distributed under the simplified BSD license.
