deprecated, use Polonium instead


Autotiling for KWin using heavy inspiration from kwin-tiling-scripts.


  • Works in Wayland Plasma 5.27 and up. On X11, please use Bismuth.
  • Manage layouts via the integrated KWin GUI
  • Send your windows to other virtual desktops while tiled
  • Move your windows around, and automatically untile/retile them when moving (doesn't work unless tile you are moving into can be binary split)
  • Keybinds to select and move your windows around
  • If you close your eyes and imagine, then it can be as good as Bismuth


  • Requires binary-split tiles (if your tiles were put in a tree, they would be a binary tree). If you don't know what this means, you're probably fine but don't use layouts that split in 3
  • More than 1 window in a single tile will cause untested and most likely undesireable behavior
  • While the author does not test on multiple screens, others have reported that it works perfectly fine.


Before reporting an issue, please take a look at the faq. This may resolve your issue.


I think that this script is stable, but if there are any fixes or additions you will like I will be more than happy to add them.

I will try to be active on the Github for this project, to point out issues and such.


Run make and then make install.
