README

DockProgress

Show progress in your app's Dock icon

This package is used in production by the Gifski app. You might also like some of my other apps.

Requirements

  • macOS 10.15+
  • Xcode 13.4+
  • Swift 5.6+

Install

Swift Package Manager

Add https://github.com/sindresorhus/DockProgress in the “Swift Package Manager” tab in Xcode.

Latest version: 4.0.1

Carthage

github "sindresorhus/DockProgress"

CocoaPods

pod 'DockProgress'

Usage

Manually set the progress

import Cocoa
import DockProgress

foo.onUpdate = { progress in
    DockProgress.progress = progress
}

Specify a Progress instance

import Cocoa
import DockProgress

let progress = Progress(totalUnitCount: 1)
progress?.becomeCurrent(withPendingUnitCount: 1)

DockProgress.progressInstance = progress

The given Progress instance is weakly stored. It's up to you to retain it.

Styles

It comes with four styles. PR welcome for more.

Check out the example app in the Xcode project.

You can also draw a custom progress with .custom(drawHandler: (_ rect: CGRect) -> Void).

Bar

[](screenshot-bar.gif)

import DockProgress

DockProgress.style = .bar

This is the default.

Squircle

import DockProgress

DockProgress.style = .squircle(color: .white.withAlphaComponent(0.5))

By default, it should perfectly fit a macOS 11 and later icon, but there is an inset parameter if you need to make any adjustments.

Circle

[](screenshot-circle.gif)

import DockProgress

DockProgress.style = .circle(radius: 55, color: .systemBlue)

Make sure to set a radius that matches your app icon.

Badge

[](screenshot-badge.gif)

import DockProgress

DockProgress.style = .badge(color: .systemBlue, badgeValue: { getDownloadCount() })

Large badgeValue numbers will be written in kilo short notation, for example, 10121k.

Note: The badgeValue is not meant to be used as a numeric percentage. It's for things like count of downloads, number of files being converted, etc.
