termtile is a set of scripts, which set you free from your mouse and touchpad. Don't distract yourself and manage all your terminal windows with a handful of commands.
Now with multi-screen support!
All scripts are written in AppleScript, so they are unfortunately limited to OS X at the moment.
(Tip: enable Command key option in Preferences > Profiles > Window, so you'll see the keyboard shortcut which jumps to a particular window)
Just paste the following lines into Your terminal:
git clone https://github.com/apaszke/termtile cd termtile; ./install.sh
You can delete the cloned repository afterwards.
install.sh can configure all the aliases for you.
Don't worry about the conflicts. There are three ways of dealing with them already implemented:
- If you're already using
llthen the defaults can be changed:
- You can specify a prefix for all commands.
- If you already have a conflicting command and you deny to overwrite it, the script will ask you for another name, so you can choose it for each alias separately (prefix will still be applied).
ll- fill left half of the screen
rr- fill right half
up- fill upper half
down- fill lower half
ul- fill upper-left quarter
ur- fill upper-right quarter
dl- fill lower-left quarter
dr- fill lower-right quarter
big- make the window bigger
cen- center the window
max- maximize the window
sn- move to the next display
fs- toggles terminal app fullscreen
You can always customize them on your own. They always look like this:
alias ll='osascript ~/.termtile/tile.scpt left' # ^ ^ ^ # osascript path to script args
They are also very convenient in conjunction with other commands e.g.
alias vim='big && cen && vim'
Currently there are three scripts:
Distributes windows across 2 x 2 grid (affects only the last active window). Accepted arguments:
Centers the window.
Makes the window comfortably sized for tasks requiring more space (eg. vim). Default size is 1000x600, but it can be changed with the arguments (first is width, second is height).
Maximizes the window.
Moves the window to another screen. Currently only supports moving to the next display on a list.
Toggles fullscreen for the terminal app.
If you're using any scripts, which can affect your dock settings, then it might mess up the values termtile reads. If it starts working in a wierd way after you change the dock position or size please try to reboot your machine.
