ethmenu is a simple dmenu,
dmenu_run, and i3-dmenu-desktop replacement written in Python that
(in theory, properly) supports both X11 and Wayland. Compared to
dmenu, ethmenu also supports JSON, which allows to add icons and make
captions of options different from their actual printed values (see
ethmenu(1) for more details).

How to install

How to customize

The menu window isn't floating in tiling window managers
I tried my best to prevent that, but if it does happen, you'll have to tell your window manager to make it floating. For example, this is how it's done in sway:
for_window [app_id="ethmenu*"] floating enable
Some options are missing
ethmenu-run and ethmenu-desktop may suffer the same problem as
dmenu_run, and the cache may become malformed. If it somehow happens,
delete the cache files
$XDG_CACHE_HOME isn't set.
The menu is a little bit slow with thousands of options
Yup, it is. And there isn't much I can do with that using GTK. Let's just pretend it was an essential tradeoff for making it pretty.
