A billion times, THANK YOU! This not only makes the Finder more attractive again, but also more functional. By looking at the colored icons, I can quickly organize and get to where I need to go! Insanely Great!

I installed this app today and it's working perfectly. It's great to have color back in the sidebar again. It's easier on my old eyes.

Thanks for updating it for Mavericks. It doesn't seem to work in certain dialog boxes like Mail or TextEdit (Safari is fine though).

Easysmbl verstoorde verschillende programma's op het Mountain Lion systeem.En doet het zelfde op het Mavericks systeem.
Na het verwijderen van Easysymbl wekte alles terug normaal op beide systemen.'k ben erg ontgoocheld!!!

Eigenlijk is het een oude versie van SIMBL op uw computer die het probleem heeft veroorzaakt, maar de schuld geven aan Sideeffects als het maakt u zich beter voelt ..

Is there a way to get ALSO the Mail mailboxes to get their color back?...

I get asked that a lot.. not that I know of. Remember I'm just the guy who makes the installer. There are three developers involved with this project. The guy to ask would be CooViewerZoom: https://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/40989/colorfulsidebar

So MacOS X 10.9 Mavericks was released today. Luckily so was ColorfulSidebar by CooViewerZoom (though not on MacUpdate at time of writing).

I have yet to upgrade to Mavericks and build a new SideEffects - hopefully within the next few days - so I haven't tried this, but this would be the method..

1. Grab a copy of the new ColorfulSidebar.bundle at http://goo.gl/J2lcfT

2. In the finder type cmd-shift-g

3. Paste in the following:
~/Library/Application Support/SIMBL/Plugins

4. Replace the old bundle with the new one. Restart..

Good luck!

I have tested this method on Mavericks and can confirm it works.

Currently SideEffects 1.8.7 won't work with MacOS X 10.9 Mavericks.. uninstall SideEffects 1.8.7 to prevent strange behaviour in the sidebar. I am awaiting a response from the SideEffects co-developers on the other side of the planet to me to see if they intend to update their respective components. Will post here if / when I get a reply..

Thanks,
Simon
