Add space tiles to macOS dock

The dock in macOS is a convenient way to access commonly used application, the problem is that it can be hard to locate the application if there are many dock items.

To make it a little bit easier spaces can be added to the dock, so items can be grouped.

The spaces in the dock are added using a Terminal command, so do a spotlight search for terminal and then run the following command as many times as needed, a new space tile is added each time the command is executed.

defaults write persistent-apps -array-add '{tile-data={}; tile-type="spacer-tile";}'; killall Dock

The spaces can be reordered as any other docked item.

This is what it looks like
