Amphetamine

An alternative to the dearly departed Caffeine, this menu bar app overrides energy saver settings to keep your Mac awake. This one has a boat load of features and is being actively developed.

BitBar

Put pretty much anything you want in your Mac’s menu bar, using extensible plug-ins — plenty of which have already been created.

Catapult

Set up folders with related files as projects that can be opened in the app of your choice from the menu bar.

Day-O

A simple menu bar clock replacement with a simple calendar for your Mac. Installed on all Macs at thriftmac headquarters.

Dozer

Get your menu bar items under control by hiding the ones you don’t use often. Display them with a click of the Dozer icon.

Hidden Bar

Simple and effective way to hide the icons cluttering your menu bar. Decide which ones you want to hide, then use an arrow icon to reveal them when needed. They’ll hide themselves again after a time that you set.

Hocus Focus

Automatically hides application windows that have been inactive for a certain period of time (you decide how long), leaving only the apps you’re using visible. Keeps your screens clutter free and your mind focused.

Itsycal

Easy access from the menu bar to a calendar for the current month and a listing of appointments and events imported from the Calendar app that comes with your Mac. Unpinning allows you to move it around the screen.

Keeping You Awake

A coffee cup icon that keeps your Mac awake when you click it. You can also set the duration. Great if you miss the now-defunct Caffeine, and don’t like Amphetamine’s pill icon.

Semulov

List all mounted volumes in your menubar, categorized by type. Clicking on a volume menu will unmount/eject that volume. Supports Growl unmount and mount notifications.

ShotBox

Use the normal Mac keyboard combinations for creating screenshots, and get the added option of sharing and markup in a little popup window.

TopNotch

Blend the notch in your MacBook Pro with the menu bar. Can also added rounded corners to your wallpaper.

Vanilla

Hide menu bar icons on your Mac. Just click on the arrow.

Xmenu

Add one or more menus to the menu bar for accessing files and data. Pre-set menus include Applications, Developer, Home, Documents and Snippets. Or define your own. (Not a system hack.)
