Show hidden files on Mac

To make hidden files visible in Finder, run this command in Terminal
defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles -bool true
To hide hidden files again in Finder, run this command in Terminal
defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles -bool false
Run this command to restart Finder, so that either one of the above commands will take effect ( Don't worry, Finder should restart with all of your previous windows open again )
killall Finder
