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.

QuickTile adds no new visible UI elements. No tray icon that just wastes space once you’re done configuring it. Once it’s set up, you’ve got your choice of new global hotkeys, a new D-Bus API, and/or a new command to invoke from shell scripts. That’s it.

For more details, see the illustrations in the Command Reference.

QuickTile depends on the Python bindings for libraries you probably already have and can be run without installing to easily try it out.
