Example of a pipe menu in action.

Pipe menus are generated at run time (on-the-fly) based on output of scripts. These are also called "dynamic menus," and are often used to provide added functionality to Openbox or integration with other software on the system. A number of scripts for generating pipe menus have been collected on this page. Please note many of these scripts have not been reviewed, and were not written by people directly involved with the project.

See the menu documentation for how to use pipe menus in your Openbox installation.
