    A tiling window manager for Windows 🍉

  • * A more general library generator for the main configuration format preferred by the community[6]

    Most interestingly for me, I used the subscription service to write an automatic application-aware keyboard layer-switcher[7], which means that I never have to store a key binding to switch between programmable keyboard layers ever again; whichever window I switch to with my tiling window manager, if there is an application-specific keyboard layer that I have defined with custom bindings, shortcuts etc, they get automatically applied without me even having to think about it.

    It's such a huge productivity booster, a real "the future is now" moment for me personally.

    Automatic application-aware keyboard layer switching for Windows

  • amethystwindows

    Discontinued [ARCHIVED] Automatic tiling window manager for Windows 10/11

  • Generally agree, and https://magnet.crowdcafe.com/index.html is the best thing I've found for MacOS. Snap is pretty good now on Windows 11 https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/snap-your-window... but AquaSnap can still do more. https://github.com/glsorre/amethystwindows looks decent and more minimal but I haven't tried it.

  • yabai

    A tiling window manager for macOS based on binary space partitioning

  • Yep, under Accessibility => Display => Toggle the Reduce motion button. It is much better but still not instant. The only way I'm aware of how to make it instantaneous is by disabling SIP and using Yabai [1].

  • RectangleWin

    Spectacle/Rectangle for Windows: Hotkey-driven window snapping for Windows 10/11.

  • Somewhat related: If you like hotkey-driven window tiling and positioning tools like macOS Spectre/Rectangle apps, I wrote https://github.com/ahmetb/RectangleWin for Windows a while back and mostly have been personally using it.

NOTE: The number of mentions on this list indicates mentions on common posts plus user suggested alternatives. Hence, a higher number means a more popular project.
