HierarchicalDock

1.2
31 December 2007

Gives you hierarchical menus in your Leopard Dock.

Overview

HierarchicalDock gives you hierarchical menu navigation of folders sitting in your Dock. As of Mac OS X 10.5, Leopard doesn't support going through more than 1 folder deep for stacks in your Dock. This makes it easier to navigate multiple folders deep with a simple click.

What's new in HierarchicalDock

Version 1.2:
  • Improved Performance
  • Fixed a bug that prevented creation of folders with "/" in the filename
  • Better positioning
  • Show Finder's color labels
  • Show number of items of subfolders
  • Fixed .essdocker extension bug for good (you may have to re-add folders with this new version)
  • Per-Folder settings (hold down option and command and click on the folder)
  • Doesn't mount servers anymore if not wanted
  • Fixed sizing of menus
  • Open QuickLook windows with option-click
  • Size of QuickLook Previews adjustable

The list view built into Leopard v10.5.6 doesn't display the contents of shortcuts to folders. HierarchicalDock does! Excellent!

Good news for Lion users! I've just discovered, in OS X 10.7.2, that the ability to follow aliases in Dock menus is back again, having been absent since Tiger! Three cheers for Apple for doing the right thing, albeit very belatedly. Since the loss of this feature in Leopard was the primary reason for HierarchicalDock being written, it doesn't really matter if it doesn't work any more under Lion. The native OS feature now appears to operate as it should. Hooray.

Users can still fool with their dock interface ... this little app is sooo much more useful than Stacks, watch out it doesn't turn up in 10.5.2! Thank you for this!

Fantastic!!! Simple but very effective. Thankyou... But you might want to work on some alternative interface for it because the regular Leopard stacks do look cool, more so I'm affraid than the HierachicalDock, however it is still great.

As I stated below, the developer did a very good job with this little app. Thanks again! But luckily Apple is catching up our criticism and they will implement the list view in the next update OSX 10.5.2: http://www.macrumors.com/2007/12/20/apple-adds-list-view-to-stacks-in-leopard-10-5-2/

Thank you for this app! You saved me the trouble of having to write it myself. :-) I tried the shareware one, Quay, but it was just too slow with the incredibly large folder hierarchies in my dock. (Such as my SVN repositories.) HierarchicalDock is just as fast as the Tiger dock. Not as many features as Quay, but it does what I need it to. And best of all, it is free!

About to add this app and take it for a test drive. Just wondering how it works... is it an application that runs in the background like Hierarchy or OldFolder?
