How to get MacOS to show hidden files

As a developer, in Finder I need a way to see all my files.

  1. Open Finder
  2. Type Shift + Cmd + .
  3. Enjoy seeing your hidden files and directories

It works as a toggle, so typing Shift + Cmd + . again hides the files.

Here’s a GIF (pronounced “jiff” – a topic for another post perhaps). It shows me toggling back and forth.
