When iCloud Drive first came out I was frustrated by Apple stopping me from creating a shortcut to the path on my OS X dock. I dropped a tweet out knowing I’ve some developers amongst my Twitter followers and sure enough a solution prevailed.
I want to create a shortcut to iCloud Drive on my dock. Dragging to create doesn’t work. How do you achieve it pls?

All you need to do is fire up Terminal and paste this command:
ln -s ~/Library/Mobile\ Documents/com~apple~CloudDocs ~/iCloud\ Shortcut; open ~/;
Then drag iCloud Shortcut to the right hand side of the Dock.
