I'm wondering if there is any commands or programs to make some window maximized in X Window? For example, what I imagine is something like this
xmaximize -window *window_id*

You can do this using
Get your window's ID.
$ wmctrl -l 0x02a00004 0 grinchy saml@grinchy:~ 0x0620004f 0 grinchy [gnome] Bash command for Maximizing and Unmaximizing windows in gnome? - Google Chrome
Then toggle window ID
0x0620004f, like so.
$ wmctrl -i -r 0x0620004f -b toggle,maximized_vert,maximized_horz
