Our great sponsors
  • OPS - Build and Run Open Source Unikernels
  • SonarQube - Static code analysis for 29 languages.
  • Scout APM - Less time debugging, more time building
  • GitHub repo Amethyst

    Automatic tiling window manager for macOS à la xmonad.

    Amethyst. It's a bit buggy, but the automatic tiling + layouts are great

  • GitHub repo yabai

    A tiling window manager for macOS based on binary space partitioning

    [Yabai[(https://github.com/koekeishiya/yabai). This paired with skhd can replicate many of Amethyst's behaviors, but it's a bit more flexible in window arrangement (i.e. you can drop a window in a specific part of your screen and it'll adjust the tiling to reflect that, whereas with Amethyst it'll just enforce the selected layout)

  • OPS

    OPS - Build and Run Open Source Unikernels. Quickly and easily build and deploy open source unikernels in tens of seconds. Deploy in any language to any cloud.

  • GitHub repo skhd

    Simple hotkey daemon for macOS

    [Yabai[(https://github.com/koekeishiya/yabai). This paired with skhd can replicate many of Amethyst's behaviors, but it's a bit more flexible in window arrangement (i.e. you can drop a window in a specific part of your screen and it'll adjust the tiling to reflect that, whereas with Amethyst it'll just enforce the selected layout)

  • GitHub repo Rectangle

    Move and resize windows on macOS with keyboard shortcuts and snap areas

    Rectangle. More like Windows' native window snapping (or Magnet on macOS), but FOSS and doesn't automatically tile. Personally I found the automatic tiling WMs lagged pretty hard when I was screensharing in meetings, so I've switched to this.
