macOS has some basic snapping built in but I don't like that it fullscreens the app.

I love Windows' implementation where you can just drag to size windows. I'd only really want left and right.

Do you know of a good tool to do this? Free or cheap is great, happy to pay if it's really worth it!

If you only need these basic options. If you need more powerful snapping options you have to use something different.

Try 4 instead of 5. macOS uses both for different kinds of screen captures.

edit: I mean cmd + shift + 4

+1 for Spectacles. I've bound a general keymap for CTRL + CMD + UP to make the window big, and CTRL + CMD + LEFT/RIGHT to put them to the left or right, taking half of the screen. Works perfectly.
