Grid-based manual tiling window manager with a strong focus on easy but
customizable look and feel.
In comparison to other tiling window managers,
subtle has no automatic tiling of the screen size in any way. Instead, windows
are arranged according to positions inside of a grid. These positions are
called gravities.
