chunkwm is a tiling window manager for macOS that uses a plugin architecture, successor to kwm. It represents windows as the leaves of a binary tree, and supports binary space partitioned, monocle and floating desktops.

Development is happening on macOS Mojave (10.14), but OSX El Capitan (10.11.6) and newer should work fine. Older versions may or may not be compatible and will not be officially supported.

chunkwm runs a local daemon to receive messages on a dedicated socket (port 3920).

chunkc is a program that writes messages on chunkwm's socket.

chunkwm does not handle any keyboard input.
A third party program (e.g: skhd) is needed to map keyboard events to chunkwm actions.

Both of my tiling window managers (kwm and chunkwm) have been heavily inspired by bspwm, and I'd like to thank baskerville for his project and for introducing me to an interesting tiling concept.
