10.7: Remove the Developer category from Spotlight results
Authored by: Anonymous on Aug 27, '11 02:59:54PM
Well, the quality of these hints lately are not up to the standard it used to be!

First of all. If you install Xcode you will have the Developer option in the normal Spotlight preference window and you can disable it the normal way.

Secondly. As someone else wrote here. TextWrangler and BBEdit are perfectly capable of taking care of binary plists so there is no need for converting.

And for those who prefer to use terminal you can add the missing dictionary and disable the Developer category with one command. This is a hint! :-)

defaults write com.apple.spotlight orderedItems -array-add "<dict><key>enabled</key><false/><key>name</key><string>SOURCE</string></dict>"
