Is it possible to configure i3 to place new containers of a workspace in a certain way? I want the containers to be gradually oriented as in the below picture without having to manually split and move them.


nwg-piotr's autotiling script is what you want. It doesn't automatically place app #3 in the bottom left quadrant, since it splits the window based on the longest edge. However, if you look at the YouTube demo you see it's possible to do what you want if you switch focus just once.
