I have been developing sites on Macbook Air since over a year now. I have created a special directory called "Sites" under /Users/<username>. This is where all my sites are located on localhost. I realized that there is no easy way to access folders under /Users/<username> through the GUI. Here is a nifty trick to add a shortcut to the desired folder in the Favorites section of the Finder window.
Here are the steps:
- Open the Finder Window.
- Click on "File" -> "Find".
- In the top right search textfield, enter the folder name you want to link to.
- In the dropdown menu, filter by "Folder".
- Once you find the folder, drag and drop it in the Favorites.
