Showing Hidden Files in Finder on Mac Osx
Short and sweet, MAC OSX has this annoying trait where hidden files (dotfiles) are not visible by default in Finder. No probs, I’ll just go to the “View” menu and turn them on. Nope…nada, zip.
Turns out you have to enter a command in the terminal, nice. Here it is for future reference:
Then kill Finder to have the changes take effect.
If you ever want to turn hidden files off?
