Bluetile is a tiling window manager for Linux, designed to integrate with the GNOME desktop environment.
Bluetile is a tiling window manager for Linux, designed to integrate with the GNOME desktop environment. It provides both a traditional, stacking layout mode as well as tiling layouts where windows are arranged to use the entire screen without overlapping. Bluetile tries to make the tiling paradigm easily accessible to users coming from traditional window managers by drawing on known conventions and providing both mouse and keyboard access for all features.
Bluetile started as a university project and topic of my thesis (you can find slides of my talks and the thesis online, but only in German). It now continues as an open source project. See the wiki for more background on the motivation behind Bluetile and its relationship to xmonad.
