Dockspacer for Mac OS X Build Status

v1.0.2

Dockspacer screenshot

This Terminal-level program creates empty items in your Dock — either in the Applications area, or near the Recycle Bin — that you can use as spacers in order to delimit logical groupings of items. For example, you may have Sublime Text 3 and TextWrangler in your Dock, sitting next to each other, and you want to separate them from other Dock items with spacers.

Note: This program does not remove any Dock items you create; you’ll need to remove unwanted Dock spacers manually.
