My screen is a bit small and dividing it in two vertically to see a pdf while editing it leaves a lot to be desired. However, if pdf-tools or pdf-view mode had the option to hide a % of the empty white margins for each page of the document it would fit just right. It is possible to do this?

PocketBook reader for android has this feature and you only see the parts of a pdf with actual characters on them.

bonus: It is possible to run pdf-view-fit-width-to-window automatically?

    Try M-x pdf-view-auto-slice-minor-mode RET, and then W to fit to width. – Augusto Jan 12 at 18:52
