Tablets have been around for years but this is not a tablet with a pointy pen device. This a full hands on experience. If I had one I could have written this post with the latest WordPress app for the iPad.
The first thing you notice in Mac Finder is there is no way to show hidden files. In Windows Explorer or Gnome this is in the menus. On mac you need to set a environment variable called “com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles” to toggle the state of hidden files.
I manually changed this a couple of times, but its annoying to do all the time. So I thought of adding it to a bash script to make things easier.
#!/bin/bash SHOW_FILES=`defaults read com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles` if [ $SHOW_FILES = "FALSE" ]; then defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles TRUE else defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles FALSE fi killall Finder
