Emulating/Looking-like a WM Webpage - venam - 17-07-2017

Hello fellow nixers,
There was a trend we were doing some years ago about making our personal webpage similar to our window manager. I remember quite a lot of members had set that up.

Today I've seen this page popped up and I wondered about what happened to all those websites we made.

I still have the old version of my blog here (trying to look like 2bwm):
https://venam.nixers.net/old

Let's start this trend again, it'll be fun.

Bump this thread with website you found that looked like a window manager or with new ideas.

Cheers!

That is pretty cool.

My site is a little bit similar to my wm. I use the same background and colour scheme, and I styled the layout with a wm in mind. It's good idea though, I may have a play around at improving it.

My favourite window manager based webpage is the classic Dennis Nedry's from Jurassic Park.

Just came across the lobste.rs bbs page, not quite a wm but thought it fits.

Why not do something similar for this site :)?

Yet another one that was posted today on HN (more like terminal than WM though):

How would that work? Every post in a terminal/window? I can't picture this.
Wouldn't it waste a lot of space?

I think the design we have right now is pretty close to the typical design of minimal window managers. I really like it this way.
