Show Notes

This week, we go over some interesting and useful Terminal commands. We also look at the missing macOS package manager, Homebrew, and do some video conversion using ffmpeg. If you're too slow to write them down (just kidding), here are the Terminal commands I showed you:
  • defaults write AppleShowAllFiles -bool TRUE
  • defaults write type jpg
  • defaults write disable-shadow -bool TRUE
  • sudo defaults write /Library/Preferences/ LoginwindowText "Are you sure you're supposed to be here?"
  • defaults write persistent-apps -array-add '{"tile-type"="spacer-tile";}'
