Good work Wolfgang! We are riding again under 10.11! :)

It is a shame though that the ColorfulSidebar option is no longer working. Even installing SIMBL and ColorfulSidebar separately from cDock does not work. Likewise, the ColorfulSidebar installation that is included in Xtrafinder and with SideEffects don't work either.

Apple's current, drab gray-on-gray user interface is really boring and for the birds. I honestly don't know what they are thinking over there.

For decades, Macs have always been about color, beauty, and eye-popping clarity in the OS's graphic design. Personally, I much preferred the metallic, platinum look with colorful icons everywhere. It gave windows more depth.

Everything has gone downhill design-wise since then.

I also have to wonder why, after so many years, Apple hasn't offered more user interface options in the Dock. Would it really be so difficult for them to introduce dock themes, so that we don't have to rely on a third party hack like cDock?

So be thankful that Wolfgang is doing his best to keep cDock updated and compatible for us. I most certainly am. :)

Doesn't work on my Mac Mini. I have this problem for almost a year now. The problem is on Mojave with version cDock 1.2.0. The program is impossible to use, so useless purchase!

Wasted a lot of time on this. Conflicted with Flashlight and disabled Spotlight operation. Had to rebuild my entire user folder to isolate the issue. Then after reinstalling Flashlight, CDock and MySimbl from the latest versions I could find with System Integrity disabled (required), neither Flashlight or CDock would work. Finally gave up and deleted all of them, including MySimbl. Wasted 7 hours on this stuff. Running High Sierra 10.13.6.

I have EXACTLY the same problem cDock v1.2, and SIP is always disabled. On iMac restart I have to "restart" cDock again & everything is fine.

I ran cDock 1.1.3 on my iMac with Sierra and cDock rendered my Mac *ENTIRELY* unusable. I launched it and it then got itself into an endless loop of (what looked like) restarting the Dock and itself, over and over and over every second or so. I couldn't select Force Quit, I couldn't quit it directly, etc... I had to power down my Mac and boot in safe mode just to be able to remove it.

It's a great app for sure, but starting with Mojave, the user will have to keep System Integrity Protection (or at least the relevant part of SIP) disabled for cDock to work. On High Sierra you could disable SIP, install the SIMBL helpers for cDock, then enable SIP again. That's sadly not possible anymore. And I'd rather leave my machine protected than have a nicer Dock. Too bad for the money.

Excellent app to personalise your dock! Many options (my pref is transparent dock), options to remove various GUI items that Apple feels are necessary. One purchase/licence covers laptop and desktop, so very cheap for the various features and options on all of your macs. Recommended!

Makes the Dock pleasant and useful again. If only to be able to place it at the top of an edge where I can finally feel like using it, but it does so much more.
