Shower Door Stopper or limiting hinge

I'm redoing a bathroom that originally had a small odd size stall shower with a sliding door. I'd like to replace it with a swinging door for several reasons (Cost - house is being freshened to be sold, aesthetics, availability - to keep it as a sliding door would require custom order, etc). The issue is a swinging door will hit the toilet if opened too far. Do they make a stopper designed for a glass shower door or a limiting hinge or arm that would allow the door to open but not too far that it would hit the toilet. Not finding anything. Thanks

You would probably need to put a self adhesive door stop on the glass.

I guess that's one possibility. Any others?

Why bother? A door stop on the glass or frame will only call attention to the potential problem. I would only add a stop or bumper if I thought bumping the door would possibly break the glass.

I have one of these (in white) on a wood door that swings open and hits the side of a tub only to keep the noise down.

There is the concern that opening the door might break the glass.
