Pop!_Shell Window Tiling Extension for GNOME

Share on:

Pop Shell is a keyboard-driven layer for GNOME Shell which allows for quick and sensible navigation and management of windows. This extention adds features that you will find in dedicated window managers such as DWM and Awesome!

Tiling window management in GNOME is virtually nonexistent, which makes the desktop awkward to interact with when your needs exceed that of two windows at a given time. Luckily, GNOME Shell is an extensible desktop with the foundations that make it possible to implement a tiling window manager on top of the desktop. - https://github.com/pop-os/shell
