(Also spelled "Dock App") Short for "Dock
", a small program intended for use with WindowMaker
areas. Essentially, a program that runs in an icon. However, unlike some other schemes like GNOME panel applet
s, 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:
- Clock and date display that includes both digital and analog clock, calendar and Beats.
- Shows current phase of the Moon as graphic, as well as some other interesting lunar information.
- Classical load monitor a la xload.
- Television set on dock. Incredible.
- Connects/disconnects a PPP connection and shows the traffic load of the line.
