Organizing your dock in OSX

I’d always used DockDoctor in the past to organize my dock by adding spacers. Being the minimalist that I am, I really don’t like having to keep a program like this installed when I’m only using one minor feature. Turns out there’s a native way of handling dock spaces:

  1. Open Terminal
  2. Copy and paste, then press ‘Return’ to add a spacer (repeat this step to insert as many spacers as you like):
    defaults write com.apple.dock persistent-apps -array-add '{"tile-type"="spacer-tile";}'
  3. Now restart the dock by typing:
    killall Dock

Now you’ll see a spacer between your icons. This spacer can be dragged around just like any other application icon, including out of the dock to make it disappear when you’re done with it.
