I used awesome WM for quite some time now and got used to tiling. Now that I
am coming back to KDE I also was looking for a tiling plugin.
I came across this one:
Have a look at the plasma5-branch.
Unfortunately it did not work for me :( It ate every single key/mouse event
or at least prevented to let anything happen: I could not change windows,
open te KDE menu, change workspaces, ... So I had to kill X and login again.
Probably you have more luck :)
