QuickTile by ssokolow

Keyboard-driven Window Tiling for your existing X11 window manager

QuickTile is a simple utility, inspired by WinSplit Revolution for Windows, which adds window-tiling keybindings to your existing X11 window manager.

You can also think of it as a standalone alternative to the keyboard-related features of the Compiz Grid plugin.

For more details, see the illustrations in the command reference.
