Using xdotool as a Tiling Window Solution

In this post, I’d like to explain how I use xdotool to easily tile windows to my preferred layout on my 49" 5K monitor.

The Problem

I recently bought a 49" monitor with 5K resolution, which I intend to use mostly for productivity work. My previous monitor was a 27" with 1080p resolution. So it’s quite a generous upgrade on the screen real estate department.
