How to show hidden folders files in MAC?

I keep forgetting the command to show or hide hidden files in my Finder. So keeping this as a post as a reference to myself. Hope its useful to someone else as well. =)

You will need to copy and paste the commands below into your Terminal application.

To show hidden files,
$ defaults write AppleShowAllFiles TRUE
$ killall Finder

To hide back,
$defaults write AppleShowAllFiles FALSE
$killall Finder
