macOS Hidden Files

Info about hidden files on macOS

Depending on your macOS settings, some files may be hidden from view in your Finder window, such as .gitignore. To view all files, run the following command and then reopen the Finder window:

defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles -bool true
