Technologies

This program is written in OCaml and is currently using a fork of bemenu (written in C) underneath. This fork of bemenu has to vocation to disappear little by little in the future as the code will ultimately be rewritten in OCaml.

Due to the distribution of the client code from bemenu, this whole project is licensed under GNU GPLv3 (and GNU LGPLv3 for bemenu's own library and bindings)
