It’s super easy to make Finder show hidden files for you. Everything you need is to run Terminal and execute the following command:

defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles TRUE

All your hidden files will become visible as soon as you restart finder. To have an immediate effect you can kill Finder process using the command below and start it again.

killall Finder

If you want to revert this feature just change TRUE to FALSE in the first command and execute it one more time.
