Gnome-shell extension that tiles windows as you like.

This extension is developed at GitHub If you are reading this documentation anywhere else, it might be out of date.

Configuration

To configure gTile open the file extension.js go down to SETTINGS comments and edit this part of the code:

/*INIT SETTINGS HERE TO ADD OR REMOVE SETTINGS BUTTON*/
/*new GridSettingsButton(LABEL, NBCOL, NBROW) */
function initSettings()
{
    //Here is where you add new grid size button
    gridSettings[SETTINGS_GRID_SIZE] = [
        new GridSettingsButton('2x2',2,2),
        new GridSettingsButton('4x4',4,4),
        new GridSettingsButton('6x6',6,6)
    ];

    //example for new GridSettingsButton:
    myCustomButton = new GridSettingsButton('Custom',8,8); //Going to be a 8x8 GridSettings
    gridSettings[SETTINGS_GRID_SIZE].push(myCustomButton);


    /*NEW SETTINGS*/    
     //You can change those settings to set whatever you want by default
     //Afterward you can change those parameters using the gTile interface
     gridSettings[SETTINGS_AUTO_CLOSE] = true;
     gridSettings[SETTINGS_ANIMATION] = true;
}
