Spice up your Dock a little.

Overview

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 to prevent users altering Dock settings and contents and an option to hide or remove the menubar and dock.

What's new in Docker

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)

Has some very cool features, but BEWARE...the kiosk features may seriously screw up your apps, and even if you undo what you did, they will remain broken until reinstalled. Do NOT remove the menubar from Mail, iCal, basically anything that uses the keychain. I think this feature should be removed until it does not screw up keychain access.

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.

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.

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.

Docker and SuperDocker have common features but also complimentary ones, therefore, I would recommend downloading both of them. Special thanks to both developers for these two very useful applications.

My only criticism is that there isn't a provided folder of images to use with Docker.

Installed this specifically for the menubar hiding feature. It works, but there's an unfortunate sacrifice... You need to manually change the setting for each application you want to have a hidden menubar for AND once the menubar is hidden spotlight is disabled... both from keyboard shortcut access and even mouse triggered access. I'm frustrated that there is no mention of this known issue anywhere on the site or in the documentation. Would have saved me the hour I spent, first manually changing the setting for every single regularly used app in my folder, and then immediately having to undo it all one by one after I realized losing spotlight was the price I payed for a bit of clear screen. The developer knows about the issue and suggested leaving the menubar visible in the finder, and clicking to the finder when spotlight is needed. Perhaps a workable solution for an occasional spotlight user, but for someone that uses it constantly as the OS X keyboard accessible launcher, that absolutely cripples functionality and workflow. So if you depend heavily on Spotlight, count this feature out if you're wanting to use Docker. (I customize the Dock using other means, so the hidden menubar was my only interest) On the other hand, if you don't use Spotlight, or use an alternative searching/launching system (quicksilver etc.) then this handly little app may work well for you.

Possible to change the dock's background color (2D mode)? Also, how about a separator a little less obtrusive and resembling that of the Tiger dock...

Okay, now it works as advertised (but why not simply revert to the 1.3 authentication routine pure and simple). There's another kind of Dock-mod. I'd like ot see. Towards the end of the OS 9 era I started using A-Dock to accustom myself to using the dock interface, and one of its nicest features was a user-definable time delay option so that a hidden dock didn't come popping up every time your cursor accidentally grazed the edge of the screen. To get the dock you had to keep it in contact for, say, half a second. Very nice, and I wish that the Apple Dock had the same feature rather than being such a "hair trigger" thing. I'm accidentally bringing it up all the time, which gets to be a nuisance. It would be great if somebody could write a mod. program that would add this time delay feature to the Apple Dock.

It mostly does the job it sets out to. But has a horrible interface, and it doesn't use the standard authentication dialog, which makes me wonder what they're really doing with my password... After messing with a few settings I clicked "Restore to Defaults", it gave me the fake authentication dialog, I clicked cancel, and it proceeded to reset the dock to the system defaults anyway! Please Mr. Developer, take a look at Xcode and Apple's interface guidelines.

Still not right. I type in name and password, hit Okay...nothing happens, this time it doesn't crash, it just sits there.

It looks as if this app is broken on my Leopard. After changing color settings and clicking "Apply," then entering my system password as required, the dock quits, but then it never restarts. I have to click "Restore Apple Defaults" in the bottom left corner to recover my dock.

it works well at first. I have my dock set to left side, "start", which means that it appears at the top of the screen, running down the left edge. I also have the dots replaced with triangles. when I plug in my second monitor, and then unplug it, the dock is now returned to the middle of the screen (still on the left) but the triangles are now at the top! and even weirder, the dock itself is not functional; the blank spaces next to the triangles at the top of the screen are what I must click on to use the icons in the dock. if I restart the dock, it's all back to normal and the dock is back to the top. this should be fixed in this otherwise great program.

I have tried a lot of dock modifiers for Leopard, and I really prefer Docker because of the clean interface. Please use my small donation for further development. Thanks.

This program is awesome! It does an amazing job with customizing the dock! I didn't know you could customize it that much. Very good job. It does what it says and does well. It does much more than any other application I've ever used!

Good little app, works as advertised. But TinkerTool may also do (and more) what people want from this program.
