Mac: If you’re working in Terminal it means you’re working with your keyboard and not a mouse. Termtile is a program that allows you to move around your Terminal windows without ever laying a hand on your mouse or trackpad.

Once Termtile is installed, you can just type in a command to move a Terminal window just about anywhere. Here’s a list of accepted commands:

  • ll – fill left half of the screen
  • rr – fill right half
  • up – fill upper half
  • down – fill lower half
  • ul – fill upper-left quarter
  • ur – fill upper-right quarter
  • dl – fill lower-left quarter
  • dr – fill lower-right quarter
  • big – make the window bigger
  • cen – center the window

It’s a pretty handy little utility if you’re in Terminal a lot. As you’d expect, you can also customise that pretty much any way you want as well.
