Move window is a script that I use to rearrange windows under Mac OS X without touching the mouse.
New windows open in Mac OS X wherever they want. Command line enthusiasts hate to grab the mouse and placing windows is a pain. move_window.py to the rescue: it lets you position your windows very quickly and cleanly via the commandline - most useful in conjunction with Launchbar or Quicksilver.
You need to have XCode installed to have a compiler available. Then, installation should be as simple as:
pip install .
in this directory.
The syntax is easy: move_window takes screen id, number of x partitions, a range, number of y partitions, a range done. Examples:
move_window 0 # Move current window to first screen (0), fill entire screen move_window 021 # fill right half of first screen (screen id 0, 2 X partitions, fill second) move_window 02031 # first screen (0), left half (20), divide in 3 parts in y direction (3) and use middle (1)
See also my introductive blog post for more information and examples.
The contrib directory contains an AppleScript that I use for Launchbar Integration. Just drop into ~/Library/Application Support/LaunchBar/Actions, but make sure that move_window is in your path; otherwise edit the script.
