Remove .svn Or Any Other Hidden Folders in OS X

Published: 07 Mar 2008

Finder in OS X seems to be retarded at finding hidden files and folders. In my case, I wanted to recursively remove all .svn folders from a directory. To do this, it’s command line to the rescue:

rm -rf `find . -type d -name .svn`
