SPLIT PANES / DOCKER allow you to display multiple areas, either side by side or one on top of each other. Nested layouts are often part of it. By dragging a divider that appears between the areas, the user can specify how much of the total width / height goes to each area.

I have been building a backend interface in the past weeks, that forced me to look into ways to organize the workspace more efficiently . I could code my own splitter, but is not a priority right now and makes no sense to always reinvent the wheel :)

Here some of the options out there…
