    Window management is fine, what is missing are half-split/full-screen shortcuts. There are many apps which can set them up, but a built-in possibility would fix most issues, since only a very small subset of users cares about tiling wm even on linux. Though, there was a new project the other day on HN, where SIP can remain on:

    I, for my part, have configured window placement shortcuts in Hammerspoon (also possible with KM, BTT and a what feels like a million of other apps) and am completely happy. I mostly look at the maximized terminal anyway, the splits do happen in neovim and tmux.

    Waking up in the middle of the night, because Apple revoked the app ( is not fun.

    AeroSpace is a tool for developers by developers. Developers can read the code and install the app from sources

    > I'd be more than willing to try another tiling window manager on Mac if there's one out there that truly works

    Hello, AeroSpace author speaking :)

    I'd be happy if you could try AeroSpace (it's and i3-like window manager for macOS) and report me back if it loses track of windows.

    The architecture of AeroSpace is that on every user input that may change window configuration (new window created, window moved, window resized, new app launched, etc), AeroSpace runs the same idempotent operation (I call it "refresh session") that tries to detect new window, checks all invariants, re-layouts windows, etc.

    The "refresh session" performs all the mentioned steps regardless of the user input nature (it doesn't matter whether the window is moved, or a new app is launched)

    I believe that this architecture may lose windows only if the macOS API returns invalid data.

    I have been using AeroSpace for quite a while myself and I'm happy with it
