Deleting .svn files on OSX

Go to the terminal, navigate to the folder you want to delete files from and type :

find . -name "*.svn" -exec rm -rf {} ;

This should delete all .svn folders in the current directory and recurse down into sub-folders too. Please be careful with this! 🙂

I also found this handy AppleScript which will toggle hidden files on the mac:
ToggleHiddenFiles [sorry, no longer available]

Thanks to Niqui Merret and Raymond De Vries for helping with this.
