Afloat

Afloat, originally started by @millenomi, adds useful window management commands to most Mac apps, such as "Keep on top" and "Focus Follows Mouse", that you may be accustomed to if you ever used a real UNIX window manager.

Afloat adds the following options to supported apps' Window menu and if no Window menu exists it will add it's own Afloat menu:

Installation

  1. Download and open MacForge
  2. Install Afloat
  3. Restart any application to have Afloat loaded into it.

Caveats

As of OS X 10.11 (El Capitan) System Integrity Protection must be disabled in order to install mySIMBL. System Integrity Protection can be re-enabled once mySIMBL has been installed.

Credits

  • @millenomi for the original Afloat
  • @fjolnir for the "Focus follows mouse" option
  • @w0lfschild for mySIMBL and updates for Afloat
  • @raylee for a bug fix
  • @vjt for cargo-culting the XCode changes, rebuilding and publishing these instructions.
