Switch, Window-Based Context Switching
Switch is a window-based (as opposed to application-based) context switcher. By default it is bound to using
⌥⇧⇥ to cycle through the visible windows on the current space. When the interface is active,
⌥W can be used to close windows and
⌥, used to show a preferences window. The main interface looks like this:
This project is functional, but not finished. I'm using it every day, but I could use your help.
Download the latest release, put the application bundle in your
~/Applications directory, and run it! It will check for updates automatically so you can stay up to date as the project develops.
Switch requires Mac OS X version 10.9 or newer and is still in development. For a list of known issues, check out the bug tag for general badness and the quirk tag for windows being improperly shown or omitted from the interface.
To check out the project, its submodules, and open in Xcode:
git clone git://github.com/numist/Switch.git cd Switch/ rake deps open Switch.xcworkspace
At this point,
⌘R should have you up and running!
The release process uses the project
Rakefile; if you have a Developer ID certificate installed, you should be able to run
rake release without any issues. Without a Developer ID, the
app targets (and their dependencies) should succeed.
