osx – Toggle AppleShowAllFiles with a simple bash script? – Stack Overflow

Posted by jpluimers on 2015/10/15

LOL:

The if syntax of your script was a bit…well, iffy.

Indeed it is:

#!/bin/bash
#toggle AppleShowAllFiles

current_value=$(defaults read com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles)
if [ $current_value = "TRUE" ]
then
  defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles FALSE
else
  defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles TRUE
fi

killall Finder

Even the alternative if statement is:

if [[ $(defaults read com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles) == TRUE ]]
