Ubuntu – Way to automatically resize 2 windows to take up half of the screen


I am trying to figure out if it's possible to do the following(or rather bind this action to a hot key):
If on a workspace I have 2 windows, I want to maximize each one vertically and resize them horizontally to be half of the screen each and position them next to each other. Basically after this operation there should 2 equally sized windows, taking up all space.

If that's not possible with default Gnome, how can I write up a python script to do that(i.e. where can I start? Never did UI scripting with Python before…)

Unity has this built in by default.

You can Ctrl + Alt + a keypad key to arrange the window. It's fairly logical if you have a keypad!
