Now all your apps are GO for launch! Scripts and documents too! And by assigning global key equivalents to any item, running your favorite apps and scripts is only a keypress away. If you loved using DragThing for the past quarter Century, but sad that it will no longer be developed, this is the replacement you're looking for.

•Unlimited number of docks with multiple tabs.
•Drag edges to add or remove columns or rows.
•Drag tabs to snap docks to any edge of any screen.
•Drag & drop any file into a tab's grid.
•Drag & drop any file onto an app in a doc to open the file with the app.
•Run AppleScript or shell scripts in docks by clicking.
•Customize the look of each dock with many built–in liveries, or design your own with the built–in Livery Editor.
•Use sounds with actions for an enhanced user experience.
•Basic AppleScript support.
•Replicate all items in DragThing docks, along with their key equivalents.

What’s New

A tacky but good beginning

At last, a potential replacement for DragThing! The themes are 1996-era cringey and I don't get the emphasis on sound fx, but at least I can upgrade to Catalina now.

Wishlist stuff: option to always show (don't hide) the docks, allow tabs on the side (for vertical lists), more space around the tabs' titles (8px min), and a simple semi-transparent, black theme. Also, the selected tab should be the same color as the dock, and the unslected tabs should be grey (i.e. in the background).

Developer Response ,

You can create your own liveries that have the settings and look you want. You can also change the sounds to anything you want, even turn them off if they bug you. It’s certainly not the first app to use sounds as user action reinforcement.

Great Start!!

So if you are using Dragthing as a app launcher then this is the closest I have seen thus far and have tried a number of them. If we could refine a couple of parts it would be really the same thing. At this point I am pretty happy to find a replacement after searching for 2 years. Going to give feedback to developer in hope they make some minor tweeks and add a garbage can ;-)

TG for DragThing replacement!

It was a 911 to get a replacement for indispensable DragThing, so thank you! But I can't find a manual anywhere, via App Store or on your website. Right now I need to know how to move an already-made dock to another position on the screen. It doesn't seem to simply drag around. Help please.
