Tiling window manager similar to xmonad.

Overview

Amethyst is a tiling window manager similar to xmonad. It was originally written as an alternative to fjolnir's awesome xnomad but written in pure Objective-C. It's expanded to include some more features like Spaces support not reliant on fragile private APIs. Amethyst is free and open source under the MIT license.

Note: Amethyst must be given permissions to use the accessibility APIs under the Privacy tab of the Security & Privacy preferences pane. There is a comprehensive list of keyboard shortcuts that are available on the developer's webpage.

What's new in Amethyst

Version 0.14.2:
  • Added a command for cycling focus between screens rather than addressing them directly.
  • Added Widescreen Tall Right layout to match Widescreen Tall.
  • Added option to suppress the warning about conflicts with a dotfile.
  • Fixed inconsistency in tracking window focuses across screens.
  • Fixed inconsistency that prevented windows from being tracked after being unhidden.
  • Improved handling of floating windows by window title.
  • Prevented windows from being thrown to non-user spaces—e.g., Dashboard, fullscreen windows, etc.

This is very promising. Keeps all my windows neat because if I accidentally move one, it puts it back into postition. If you visit the GitHub project page at https://github.com/ianyh/Amethyst/issues you’ll see there are a number of suggestions.
