Amethyst is a tiling window manager similar to xmonad. It was originally written as an alternative to fjolnir’s awesome xnomad but written in pure Objective-C.

Moreover, Amethyst comes as an alternative to fjolnir’s xnomad and can be expanded to include helpful features like Spaces support.

Amethyst for Mac doesn’t have a graphical interface. When you start it for the first time it will ask for permission to manage your windows.

After the initial setup, you will notice a new icon on the Menu Bar through which you can check for app updates, among others.

Amethyst is free and open source under the MIT license.

To start using Amethyst you first have to enable access for assistive devices option for Amethyst via the Accessibility preferences panel.

Amethyst comes with a comprehensive list of keyboard shortcuts that are available on the developer’s webpage.
