Hidden files on OSX

Need to show hidden files (or hide them again) on OSX? Toggle this default

defaults write AppleShowAllFiles TRUE / FALSE

(remember to killall Finder to force its usage)

Nice and easy..

Also, for specific folders, try adding a period to the name of a file or folder, instant hiding. Of course, I’m not sure what sort of stuff you’d need to hide??? 🙂
