10.7: Remove the Developer category from Spotlight results
Authored by: lowbatteries on Aug 26, '11 01:25:50PM

This isn't about searching the /Developer folder, it's about searching source code files. I have tons of html, css, js, php, and other files in my home directory, and those are all listed under Developer in the spotlight results.

10.7: Remove the Developer category from Spotlight results

Hmm, this got rid of source code from Spotlight results on my machine...
Good to know that it doesn't always work, though.

I wonder, do you have any special apps that would have added source code like that?

The files are there because I'm a developer and I put them there. The point of this hint was to remove a whole category of file types from Spotlight search, no matter where that type of file is on your hard drive or how they got there.
