One thing Apple does very well is making products that “just work.”
One thing Apple makes extraordinarily difficult is tweaking those products.
A recent example was when I wanted to use some command line utilities to modify my iCloud configuration.
Just finding the iCloud directory was a chore because it’s hiding in a
Mobile Documents directory.
The root directory for iCloud is:
cd ~/Library/Mobile\ Documents/com~apple~CloudDocs
If you’re like me, you might find it useful to create an alias to access this directory quickly:
goiCloud='cd /Users/stephen/Library/Mobile\ Documents/com~apple~CloudDocs/Documents'
