Krexus — A Lightweight Custom AOSP ROM For Nexus 5 (and Other Nexus Phones/Tablets)

Once I got my new Nexus 5, I started to find an custom ROM for daily-drive, it should be stable, AOSP based, stock Android UI view, with necessary custom settings like volume key wake up, quick settings tile changeable etc.
I have been using Simple AOSP for a long time, it is simple and good like its name, but the community of SAOSP on G+ was gradually declined, the rom haven’t been update since February, I have to find new custom ROM, After taste the PureNexus (too many custom settings bring more bugs), Chroma (I don’t like the built-in emoji), even the Stock, I meet the Krexus ROM and decided to stick with it, you may ask me, Why?
