This is really interesting project…
Openbox Suite (obsuite) is a light and modulable complement to Openbox and other minimalistic window managers, which often requires packages from other desktop environments. It relies on Python and Qt, with little dependencies.
Obsuite provides a basic set of tools which make it easy to manage or monitor volume, network connection, batteries, backlight, microphone and temperature. Moreover, it includes a great application launcher, an exit splash screen and a basic Bluetooth devices manager (to do; full-fledged manager).
It is highly customizable and use Numix’s icon set. With OpenBox, tint2 and ObSuite, you’ll get a solid start for a light and beautiful custom desktop environment.
For easier testing you may add some commands to the top of Left Sidepanel:
echo -e "^sep(OpenBox Suite Test)\nOBSuite Preferences,obsuite --preferences\nOBSuite launcher, obsuite --run\nOBSuite splash,obsuite --splash\nOBSuite quit,obsuite --quit" >> $HOME/.config/mabox/places-prepend.csv
