I work with different tools that I need to open each time I open my laptop depending on the project I'm going to work on.

I'd like to have a way to automate the opening and positioning of all applications for a given project.

For example let's imagine I need to open these windows:

  • gedit maximized
  • nautilus opened on working directory, top right positioned
  • terminal opened on working directory, left right positioned
  • firefox maximized opened with a specific URL

Is there some software that could help me to automate that applications opening/positioning ?

Or maybe a little shell script that could do all that stuff.
