Recent applications in your dock with some terminal magic

Posted on

Screenshot showing custom recent applications folder created with terminalWe all have those apps we use most often that help us to be productive (or not as the case may be.  With an awesome terminal command you can add a constantly up-to-date “Recent Applications” folder to your dock just like mine pictured above.

Right-clicking the folder allows you to switch between Documents, Servers, Volumes and “Items” which seem to be your most recently accessed Home folders.

To get this and give your dock the level up it so greatly deserves open the Terminal app and enter the following code:

defaults write persistent-others -array-add '{"tile-data" = {"list-type" = 1;}; "tile-type" = "recents-tile";}'; killall Dock

You’re welcome.

Stay awesome, share the code swag and I’ll see you in the next one!
