Display Menu

A simple macOS menubar extra to apply display presets. A preset consists of screen resolutions, mirroring configurations, and dock settings.

Download

Configuration

At this stage, the app is very uncomplicated — it can only display a menu, and has no dedicated configuration GUI. To get it to work, you need to write a JSON configuration file file and put it in ~/Library/Application Support/com.chriswarrick.DisplayMenu/DisplayMenu.json. A sample file is included with the distribution.

As part of the configuration, you need to figure out ScreenIDs for your screens — use the command-line ./PrintScreenIDs executable or compile the .swift source file yourself.

Roadmap

  • only change settings that differ from current setup
  • show setting applicability and current preset in the menu
  • build a configuration GUI
