xmonad runs well on Apple OSX machines, and needs little work to be useful. This page collects advice and information on using xmonad successfully with OSX.

If you're using xmonad on a mac, add details about your configuration here!

Some instructions for using XMonad:

1. Build and install XMonad like you would any other Haskell library.

2. do the following on the Terminal:

    $ cp /private/etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc ~/.xinitrc
    $ chmod +w ~/.xinitrc
    $ vim ~/.xinitrc 
    #comment out the line 'exec quartz-wm' and add PATH-TO-XMONAD/xmonad after it.

3. open X11. XMonad should be running now.
