Docker allows one to access dock settings from a simple interface, and Leopard users can customise the style and color of their dock too!

Docker allows Leopard users to switch between 2D or 3D dock, or customize the Dock further by individually changing the color of and style of Dock parts. If you are feeling creative, you can easily select your own images, or a vast array of styles available for download.

Docker also lets users of OS X 10.2 to 10.7 and later access settings normally hidden out of sight. Choose from a larger range of dock sizes, extra animation options and more. Docker now also includes options more...

What's New

Version 1.6.7:
  • Altered Kiosk mode setting for OS X 10.7 Lion users, to prevent Kioks mode being applied to Preview and TextEdit
  • Toned down background colours within the application interface (following feedback)

Requirements

Mac OS X 10.2 or later

While it doesn't fully work in X.7+ it does still allow you to add spaces to the dock so you can group apps. This is still the best way to do that -- as sad as that may be given the last time it was updated.

Now, for previous systems this little modification works extremely well =)

Docker is / was the best of the Dock personalization apps.

Unfortunately, it is incompatible with OS X 10.8 and 10.9.

The last update was 3 years ago.

The developer as of 11/2013 reported he lacks time to commit to updating Docker.

Sad.

hi there -- I got it to work in Mtn Lion by temporarily changing Gatekeeper settings (sys pref/security/allow downloads from anywhere) but it did not have full functionality...."add recent docs" resulted in add recent applications, and I could not make the dock "floor" transparent, which is what I was hoping for. Going to try Mirage, but hopefully Docker will come up with an update as it is a nice app...

For those looking for a completely transparent Dock (ie no edges, no background) there is an app called Mirage that was written many years ago and still works under Lion. It is available her at Macupdate or from macthemes.net

I'm not sure if this is a common problem with Docker, but when I used it caused Finder to become unresponsive. I was unable to open Finder itself, my trash, and my stacks. At first I didn't know what made Finder to become unresponsive but later that night I tried Docker again and I had the same problem. I deleted it after it happened to me twice. The customizations that are possible are pretty cool though, I just wish it didn't cause Finder to mess up.

Needs to have a 2D style with no edges or background.

There is a 2D style with no edges, but unfortunately the way the background is made on the 2D Dock means that it cannot be removed. This has been looked into in the past.

Is this update (1.6.5) ready for 10.7?

This version has not yet been tested with 10.7, and it is likely that a further update will be required in due course.

v1.6.5 was Lion compatible, but v1.6.6 now adds some very minor Lion tweaks.

Really liked this app and used it for quite some time, but it just stopped launching about a month ago.
It launches and then immediately crashes. It doesn't matter enough to go through setting up a user and doing the usual tests, but still it was nice.

Most of the features are available in other apps that I already have.

I'm on a 2009 mini with 10.5.8

Very nice. Provides extensive customization options for the dock. I haven't tried the kiosk features, so I can't comment on those, but all the changes I made to my dock under 10.6.1 went without a hitch.
