Adds "Intellihide" function to the Dock.

This is similar to Ubuntu Unity's Intellihide: your Mac OS X Dock will be always shown, unless a window of the active application overlaps it.


Simply fork this repository or download the latest version.

If you like it, add it to your Login Items in Users & Groups pane of System Preferences.


This requires Enable access for assistive devices to be activated in the Universal Access pane of System Preferences. If not active, you will be prompted to activate it at first launch. Relaunch afterwards.


This is compatible with the following Mac OS X versions :

  • Leopard (needs confirmation) ;
  • Snow Leopard ;
  • Lion ;
  • Mountain Lion.

On Lion and Mountain Lion, with full screen apps, the Dock will hide automatically and return to its previous state when switching to a regular app.

Note that Lion suffers from a bug with Launchpad that is solved under Mountain Lion.
