gnome-shell-grid

While I like many of the new features in GNOME Shell, I missed the Grid plugin from Compiz. I liked getting to tile some windows without the overhead of a tiling WM. gnome-shell-grid runs in the background, listening for the following keys:

  • C-M-S-u or C-M-KP_7 -- Top Left corner
  • C-M-S-k or C-M-KP_8 -- Top half
  • C-M-S-i or C-M-KP_9 -- Top Right corner
  • C-M-S-l or C-M-KP_6 -- Right half
  • C-M-S-m or C-M-KP_3 -- Bottom right corner
  • C-M-S-j or C-M-KP_2 -- Bottom half
  • C-M-S-n or C-M-KP_1 -- Bottom left corner
  • C-M-S-h or C-M-KP_4 -- Left half
  • C-M-KP_5 -- Full screen
