    I was a Spectacle user for years, but I recently switched to using Rectangle for window management. Rectangle has a few more options than Spectacle; I’m still getting used to it but I have no strong feelings either way.

    Has anyone transitioned from moom to magnet?

    Rectangle is another oss option:

    I bought Moom long before rectangle came out, both are pretty decent.

    I like rectangle [0]. It fits my needs well enough without requiring disabling SIP. I especially like the “repeated key presses resize a window on the same side” feature, so I can get cycle the size of the window on the right side of the screen from 1/2->1/3->2/3 easily. I miss i3 sometimes and this ain’t an identical replacement but it gets the job done! Turns out I don’t move my windows all that often anyways.

    Why would you pay for magnet when you can use rectangle, which is the same but open source?
