Dato (com.sindresorhus.dato) is a Mac OS X software application that has been discovered and submitted by users of iBoostUp.

The latest version that our iBoostUp users have reported seeing on their systems is Dato 64. Dato requires macOS 11.5 or later.


Publisher Description:
Dato is a replacement for the system menu bar clock.

By default, it looks exactly the same, but when you click it, you get a small calendar, calendar events, the current time in various time zones, and more.

Dato supports all the locales and languages that macOS supports for the menu bar text, dates, times, and the calendar, but the menus are English-only.

The calendar events are read-only. There's currently no support for adding/editing events. However, you can quickly open an event in your main calendar app an edit it there.

I added a calendar to the Calendar app but it doesn't show up in Dato

You need to enable the calendar in Dato Preferences Events.

Can you add support for showing an analog clock like the systemclock?

I have no plans to add that, but you can make it work by unchecking the "Time" preference in Dato and keep the system clock.

Can you add support for flashing the time separator like the systemclock?

I have no plans to add that, but you can make it work by unchecking the "Time" preference in Dato and keep the system clock.

Dato doesn't show up in the menu bar

When the menu bar grows too large, macOS hides overflowing items, so Dato might have been hidden. Try to close some of your other menu bar apps. Theres, unfortunately, no way for apps to detect this and warn the user.
