    Hello all, I don't post here often and this is my first release since the fall of MacThemes.

    I am Alex Zielenski, I created artFileTool, sartFileTool, Zeppelin, and TinyBar. I would like to announce to you my latest tool Dockify!

    I made Dockify a few months ago to pretty much replicate the functionality we used to get with our Docks back in the day, it takes those nifty "scurve" images and morphs them onto the Dock. I'm only releasing it now because I believe it is stable enough and I finally got myself to make an installer for it.

    Dockify is open source and has all relevant information that you need here:

    You can download it here:

    Special Thanks to:
    justin0a0 for months of testing
    comex for the injection code
    erwanb for showing how to use SMJobBless properly

    Thanks!

    Thank you! Is it correct that it DOESN'T make a folder in the Library to begin with? Not showing up here.

    No, it creates a folder in ~/Library/Application Support/Dockify. Make sue you are looking in your user application support, not system

    Right, found it now. On Github it says differently under themes. Which is why I asked.

    You create a directory for you theme you want with all of the images within it.

    Alex, first of all thank you very much for making this tool, and even more for making it available for free. However, when I install the app, the GUI lets me install/uninstall a helper app apparently, but I see no option of installing the actual themes. Also, if I were to put them in the right folder under Lib/Dockify, I'm a bit puzzled to the exact format - could you make a dummy theme available for people to use, so as to know the exact format of the plist file, etc. I realise you're a developer, and as an ex-Linux guy I totally get the frustration of explaining things that are self-explanatory to you, but a dummy theme would be much appreciated. Thanks again!

    Hi, thanks for this tool!

    It seems that the frontline isn't being drawn on my end, perhaps an issue with 10.9.2?
