Tiling Window Manager: Yabai

One thing I love about Linux is being able to install some kind of tiling window manager. These automatically size windows in specific layouts and allow you to move and navigate these windows using your keyboard. Having dealt with RSI issues in the past, I’ve disliked needing to use a mouse to do so much in macOS.

Amethyst was the first window manager I used in macOS – but it wasn’t my favorite.

Now… there’s yabai.

I’m going to be checking this out in the coming weeks. Take a look at this video from Jesse Skelton if you want to get a sense what it can do!
