Is there a Fences alternative for Mac OS X? [closed]

I like Fences (a program that helps you sort icons on the desktop with icon areas) on Windows, is there another application like it that i can use on my mac computer?

"You can add spacers to the dock to separate groups of icons from others, just use this terminal comman: defaults write com.apple.dock persistent-apps -array-add '{ ""tile-type"" = ""spacer-tile""; }'
killall Dock

It will create an empty spacer that you can then drag around the dock to group your icons together.

Using spacers and stacks (folders on your dock) are probably your best bet for replicating fences. You can drop some of the folders from your home dir onto the dock like downloads and documents and if you have rules for pushing certain files into those directories (downloads path from your browser etc.) then those files will always be available there."

Desktop Groups Lite is the closest thing available. If you get the paid version you can add further customizations such as background colors and not showing the app icon in the dock.

"I've used the app Desktop Organiser previously. It's available in the Mac AppStore.

It's not as powerful as fences but it will organise files. It does not support ""Folder Portals"" for example."
