ShiftIt

Managing window size and position in OSX

About

ShiftIt is an application for OSX that allows you to quickly manipulate window position and size using keyboard shortcuts. It intends to become a full featured window organizer for OSX. It is a fork from the original ShiftIt by Aravindkumar Rajendiran which is not longer under development. For discussing any sort of stuff about this app, please create a new issue right here in github. There is also quite a quiet google group, but it's better to post stuff directly here.

Requirements

The primary development is done on OSX 10.6 Snow Leopard, but it should be running under OSX 10.5 Leopard as well.

Compiling

After cloning or download a snapshot of the repository (master branch is recommended):

  • on OSX 10.6 Snow Leopard
    1. Compile in XCode by clicking build, or use the scripts/release.sh
    2. That's it
  • on OSX 10.5 Leopard
    1. Go to Project menu and click Edit Project Settings item
    2. Select Build tab
    3. Set Architectures to be 32-bit Universal
    4. Select C/C++ Compiler Version to be GCC 4.2
    5. Check Build Active Architecture Only

The reason for this is that the Interface Builder frameworks on OS X Leopard 10.5 do not have 64-Bit capabilities.

Note: If you have a problem with the build - xcode complaining about the ShortcutRecorder IB plugin then download (from here) and build it yourself. Once done load it into the Interface Builder (double click on the just built ShortcutRecorder.ibplugin).
