I used to use Herbstluftwm, ages ago. I spent some time using Gnome as an
effort to put less time into maintenance of my environment. One thing that
I got very used to was using Wayland and it's support for monitor scaling.
Good support for fractional scaling and scaling that is different per
monitor has become vital for me.

I know that hlwm is only for X, and that a port would be no small feat.
Currently I'm using Sway, which tries very hard to be like i3. I have
never  been able to figure out it's tiling model though, and I'd really
like to find something that works like hlwm but keeps the benefits of

Does anyone know a way to get a hlwm experience on Wayland?
