Mavs show library folder
One of the most popular Finer Things in Tech posts of all time is a set of tips and a terminal command to show your home user library folder. Apple decided to hide this sensitive folder from users back in OS X Lion, but with the October 2013 release of OS X Mavericks, the company has made a solid compromise.

If you open a Finder window to your Home folder, press ⌘-J (View > Show View Options). The info window that appears has a bunch of customization options, and a new one is Show Library Folder. Note that this option is contextual; it won’t appear unless you’re viewing your Home user folder.
