Phoenix

The lightweight OS X window manager for hackers

Phoenix is a fork of Zephyros that aims for efficiency and a very small footprint.

  • Current version: 1.1
  • Requires: OS X 10.9 and up

Install

Usage

Create ~/.phoenix.js. Then add stuff like this in it:

api.bind('E', ['cmd'], function() {
  var win = Window.focusedWindow();
  var frame = win.frame();
  frame.x += 10;
  frame.height -= 10;
  win.setFrame(frame);
  return true;
});
  • For more ideas, read other people's configs in the wiki.

Documentation

Note: Phoenix can only be scripted in JavaScript.

Todo

  • In-app upgrade
