(Also spelled "Dock App") Short for "Dockable application", a small program intended for use with WindowMaker's Dock or AfterStep's Wharf areas. Essentially, a program that runs in an icon. However, unlike some other schemes like GNOME panel applets, dockapps usually don't require the dock/wharf, they also run as stand-alone X11 applications if dock/wharf is not available.

Some dockapps include:

wmitime
Clock and date display that includes both digital and analog clock, calendar and Beats.
wmMoonClock
Shows current phase of the Moon as graphic, as well as some other interesting lunar information.
wmload
Classical load monitor a la xload.
wmtv
Television set on dock. Incredible.
wmppp
Connects/disconnects a PPP connection and shows the traffic load of the line.
