Currently, WindowGroomer positions application windows on a grid in Microsoft Windows and X11.

I intend on adding support for Mac OS X and expanding its feature set to be closer to that of modern tiling window managers while remaining user-friendly.

Proposal (Fall 2013)

WindowGroomer will be a tiling window manager for Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux. I intend for it to be friendly for both mouse and touch gestures and keyboard shortcuts.


WindowGroomer can currently position windows on a grid in Windows and Linux with X11. A demonstration of this functionality is available on my portfolio site.

Planned new features

  • Mac OS X support

  • Full tiling window management

Other stuff

If anyone has a suggestion for a better name please let me know.
