Quick way on how to show hidden files in OSX

Sometimes you find yourself needing to access hidden files on your Mac, like an .htaccess file from your server, a .bash_profile, a .svn directory. On a Mac anything preceded with a ‘.’  is invisible by default. InvisibliX is a free application that will toggle hidden files to become visible.

First download invisibliX: http://www.read-write.fr/invisiblix/

Here  below is a screenshot of invisibliX. If you click on the search item it will automatically show or hide your invisible files. You can also alternatively drag and drop a folder that you want to show the hidden files.
