Dock (macOS)

Electron possui API's para configurar ícones de aplicativos no dock do macOS. A macOS-only API exists to create a custom dock menu, but Electron also uses the app dock icon as the entry point for cross-platform features like recent documents and application progress.

O dock customizado é frequentemente usado para adicionar atalhos para tarefas as quais o usuário não irá querer abrir totalmente a janela do aplicativo para acessá-la.

To set your custom dock menu, you need to use the app.dock.setMenu API, which is only available on macOS.

Exemplo

Starting with a working application from the Quick Start Guide, update the main.js file with the following lines:

const { app, BrowserWindow, Menu } = require('electron')

function createWindow () {
const win = new BrowserWindow({
width: 800,
height: 600,
})

win.loadFile('index.html')
}

const dockMenu = Menu.buildFromTemplate([
{
label: 'New Window',
click () { console.log('New Window') }
}, {
label: 'New Window with Settings',
submenu: [
{ label: 'Basic' },
{ label: 'Pro' }
]
},
{ label: 'New Command...' }
])

app.whenReady().then(() => {
if (process.platform === 'darwin') {
app.dock.setMenu(dockMenu)
}
}).then(createWindow)

app.on('window-all-closed', () => {
if (process.platform !== 'darwin') {
app.quit()
}
})

app.on('activate', () => {
if (BrowserWindow.getAllWindows().length === 0) {
createWindow()
}
})

After launching the Electron application, right click the application icon. You should see the custom menu you just defined:
