Set per-computer Dock placement
Authored by: cran on Nov 25, '10 11:13:39PM

Thank you very much for this hint. Looking for this since a while.

I tried to find ways to get a list of available options. So far the best I found is these commands:

  • defaults domains | tr , '\n' (list available preference domains, roughly the list of apps that have settings)
  • defaults find WORD (look for WORD in all settings, e. g. defaults find orientation would find the setting from the hint, among other similar settings)

I also found that zsh has very useful tab completion for the defaults command. If you use zsh and have its completion system configured please try defaults read <TAB> now. Completion even works for keys, so defaults read o<TAB> will complete the orientation setting from the hint.
