Here is the list of modules:

FvwmWiki Module Pages

FvwmPager shows a miniature view of the Fvwm Desktops and Pages. This can be configured to show only the Current Desktop or any selection of Desktops.

FvwmIconMan provides a list of running applications. You can run one or multiple managers and they can be configured to display different collections of windows.

FvwmButtons provides a method to build docks, panels, taskbars, and more.

FvwmRearrange can be used to tile or cascade windows.

FvwmIdent will create a window which contains information about the selected window, including its class, resource, window id, status of the window, and more.

There are various ways to send commands directly to fvwm from the command line, a terminal, or even your own custom scripts. The following modules can be used to send commands to fvwm: FvwmPrompt, FvwmConsole, FvwmCommand, and FvwmMFL.

FvwmEvent can be configured to trigger on specific events. When the event is triggered, the module can run any command.

The FvwmAuto module allows you to define actions for when the pointer enters and leaves a window after a specified delay. A common use of this would be to automatically raise windows, which is in fact the module's default behaviour. This can also be used to auto show/hide a panel/dock.

This module will change the background/wallpaper when changing desktops. Any command can be executed when changing desktops so this module can be used for more than just switching the background.

FvwmForm provides a way to build GUI forms that can be filled out and run custom commands.

FvwmScript allows one to build graphical applications such as desktop accessories which can just display system info or be interactive.

This module animates iconification and de-iconification on command.
