Plug-in manager.

Overview

mySIMBL is a successor to the application EasySIMBL. It is designed to make managing SIMBL plugins easy. This appication uses the older version of SIMBL.osax (0.9.9), since EasySIMBL.osax no longer works on OS X 10.9 or later, and the original developer does not seem likely to update his application or script.

Functions:
  • Repositories
  • Download and Update bundles
  • Drag and drop bundles to install in /Library/Application Support/SIMBL/Plugins
  • Open bundles with mySIMBL to install in /Library/Application Support/SIMBL/Plugins
  • Delete bundle (Trash can)
  • Show bundle in Finder (Magnifying Glass)
  • Move bundles between (Colored Circle Icon)
    • /Library/Application Support/SIMBL/Plugins
    • /Library/Application Support/SIMBL/Plugins (Disabled)
    • ~/Library/Application Support/SIMBL/Plugins
  • Show bundle developer page (Globe Icon)
    • Must have url included in /Contents/Info.plist
    • plist value is string 'DevURL'
  • Automatically watches for bundles in
    • /Library/Application Support/SIMBL/Plugins
    • ~/Library/Application Support/SIMBL/Plugins

This is excellent. Thanks for the effort on this! First thing to go on all of our workstations is SIP (System Integrity Protection) as it's simply not worth the headache with what we do as far as developers and designers. I abhor the thought of Apple turning Macs into i-like devices and if Apple forces the point, we'll be abandoning Apple altogether.

FYI, installing any form of SIMBL to get a "colorful sidebar" in Finder is not necessary. Simply install the "TotalFInder" application. I can't live without it. It provides many awesome features, including colorful sidebar and better tabs.

I'm using Total Finder now, since colorful sidebar no longer works. But TF does not do as good or complete a job of showing colored and custom icons as colorful sidebar did. Total Finder does do more, but it also does less. I contacted the developer and he has no interest (capability?) in doing more. He is sadly complacent.

Doesn't work for me in Sierra. The only SIMBL plug-in I was using before upgrading to macOS 10.12 was colorfulsidebar in Mavericks. But even with System Integrity Protection disabled the plug-in no longer affects Finder windows. I uninstalled SIMBL and reinstalled version 0.9.9. MySIMBL shows SIMBL and the colorfulsidebar plug-in enabled, but they don't work. If they had, I would consider running with SIP disabled, but since they don't, I re-eanbled it. In the meantime, I have a feature recommendation. It would be helpful if there were a select all feature in the blacklist window. This would make it easier to enable it in selected applications so that the "run in" button would apply only to those apps which, it seems to me, would be a lot safer.

Did you get it working in Sierra?

Just FYI for everyone: I just installed Sierra... disabled SIP... ran MySimbl and it "updated" and made sure Simbl was installed and, ba-da-bing, it worked fine! (Mostly).

Keep in mind, some of the plug-ins like colorfulsidebar don't seem to work in Sierra.

Edit:

colorfulSidebar_9 works GREAT(!!!) and is available at:

In my opinion it would be nice if the notes here just said “requires SIP to be disabled”.

SIP needs to be disabled only to install SIMBL. Once that's installed you can re-enable SIP without consequences.

A really handy application to control the SIMBL blacklist. This was needed by use of cDock2 since some applications that shouldn't be injected (e.g., Archive Utility and Printer Que apps) wouldn't auto-quit on completion. The only problem I've had is that cDock2 (0.12.4) installs SIMBL 0.13.9 and mySIMBL complains that it SIMBL 0.9.9 isn't present;. I just cancel out of that error message and can then add to the blacklist by clicking on the SIMBL tab. Thanks for the app!
