Feature Request: dmenu layout #64

First just want to say that fuzzel is fuzzing awesome! Absolutely love it!

Just wondering though (and apologies if this isn't the appropriate place to ask) if any future plans to offer some flexibility with the menu placement? Would be cool if there was a dmenu version (horiztonal across top of screen), or even the ability to add some vertical offset to the current layout.

Obvlousy not a 'must need', but would be a 'nice to have' for some users.

Thanks and appreciate all the quality products you guys are putting out!

While I do think it would be cool with alternative layouts, I think the chance of that getting implemented is small.

Since fuzzel doesn't use any toolkits, but renders everything by itself, a different layout means re-writing all rendering code, more or less.

Happy to keep this issue open, in case someone wants to try their hands at it.

@chaibronz You might be interested in bemenu: https://github.com/Cloudef/bemenu

However, it does not support desktop files natively. You would have to use e.g. https://github.com/enkore/j4-dmenu-desktop and do something like j4-dmenu-desktop --dmenu='bemenu -i' --term='foot' for that to work.

For cases when you want a dmenu-like layout, why not use the "dmenu-wayland" tool?
