mysides

A simple CLI tool for Finder sidebar modification.

NOTE: I clobbered this together with very little experience in C/CoreFoundation, as a result the code may be horrible.

*NOTE: Using Versions 10.11 El Capitan or 10.12 Sierra, you can also use sfltool to achieve similar things. These options were removed in 10.13 High Sierra onwards *. Example:

$ sfltool add-item com.apple.LSSharedFileList.FavoriteItems file:///Path/To/Sidebar/Folder

Usage

List sidebar favorites items:

mysides list

Append a new item to the end of a list:

mysides add example file:///Users/Shared/example

Insert a new item at the start of the list:

mysides insert example file:///Users/Shared/example

Remove the item (by name):

mysides remove example

You can’t perform that action at this time.
