Does anyone know about the suckless project?


I've recently been interested in the project, so I sent an subscribe mail to join the mailing list, but I don't get any reply. I searched Google, other people were having the same problem.
In addition, looking at the mailing list archive, the latest thread was posted 2 years ago.
Is the project aborted?

Sorry for my bad English skill

Well, their git shows recent activity, so I don't think the project is abandoned.

Update. I also see recent activity on their mailing lists. Which one have you tried to subscribe to?

I signed up for dev and news. btw as soon as I read this, I got a reply mail notification. It's weird.
Anyway, itís good to be able to receive news now
I didn't think about checking the git activity. Thank you for your reply.

I have used a couple of their projects: dwm st, one or more of the info bars for dwm and the browser. I like the philosophy but some of the software is too bare bones for me.

Oh yeah, I forgot dmenu - it's awesome. I used it in fluxbox; just make a keyboard shortcut for it. Simple and effective. I think I even donated to the project overall. I like the philosophy.

Their terminal (st) was using deprecated APIs that caused it to crash when displaying colored emojis, last I checked. That was when I decided that they didn't deserve their good reputation.

I never liked the terminal. Too much patching needed to make it useable. Yeah, xterm is supposed to be a coding nightmare but personally I could care less, it works.
