#4 Product of the DayFebruary 22, 2018

One year ago, I worked on a small sideproject called VEEER, which I now uploaded to the internet - It'd mean a lot if you try it out! ❤️

VEEER is a lightweight window manager for your mac OSX - designed for designers & developers and built for a maximum workflow speed.

👉 Edit: Major update with bugfixes & new features is planned! 👈 🎉🖥

Reviews

  • Pros: 

    Easier to use when compared to free alternatives

    Cons: 

    Doesn't work well with dual monitor setup

    No animation when snapping ( good / bad depends on the user ).

    Switched from spectacle to this, the only downside is that it doesn't work with the second monitor and applies the changes to the primary screen only.

  • Pros: 

    - Easy to use

    - ITS FREE

    - Very configurable

    Cons: 

    - To fast for mac -> maybe transitions would be good

    Just installed it and exactly searched for something like this. I used Magnet before.

Well nobody asked it so I'll ask How is it different than Spectacle ❓

@deadcoder0904 Honestly, Veeer has been my very first attempt at creating an macOS app. Originally starting out designing the UI and knowing about all the other window management apps, I decided to "scratch my own itch” by focusing on my design workflow by adding additional features such as dragging windows without titlebar and minimizing windows using the right mouse button which I found to be helpful in combination.

@julian_praest Its nice product. This looks pretty similar to what I would've made. Great job 🎉

Is it going to remain free? Or are there plans to monetize? If it's going to remain free (even with updates), I will definitely give it a go!

@d4nyll From the website 😉 "VEEER is a fun sideproject of mine… While the current version (1.0.0) is completely free, I reserve the right to change the pricing in the future."

@d4nyll It’s been a small sideproject / program of mine that I forgot about in the past months due to my studies, work and other project and only now uploaded it to make it available for anyone who might find it useful. I didn’t expect this positive resonance, but I’m really overhappy and will work on an update in the coming days. I'm also considering to make it open-source. 😃✌️

This is a great window manager but it's crying out for screen area/edge detection when dragging a window so you can drag it into the specified position/sizes. 👍

@ryan_roberts1 Noted. Thanks for the support - will work on adding that feature with the next update!

looks a great alternative to the one I'm currently using with a few extra features..those small additions make big differences, thanks for sharing it! How come it's free?

@graeme_fulton It’s rather been a small sideproject / program of mine that I forgot about in the past months and that I now decided to "just get it out" for anyone who might find it useful. Thanks a lot for your interest Graeme! 🙌
Graeme Fulton@graeme_fulton · Making Email Otter 🐭
