Shows moving blobs

wmblob is a pretty much useless program, that shows moving blobs. It’s a nice dockapp for Window Maker www.windowmaker.org, and it may well run with other window mangers.

How to use it

Just start it. There are no command line options. You can change the colors with the three mouse buttons

- Left button changes the inner color of the blobs.
- Middle button changes the border color of the blobs.
- Right button changes the background color.

There are 16 colors available. But not every combination looks good.
