10.7: Make Front Row work with iTunes 10.4
Authored by: lowbatteries on Sep 30, '11 11:49:18AM

As another commenter noted:

1. The hint needs to be updated to remove the first apostrophe at the first of the plist file.

2. iTunes must be running for you to connect to it

The whole plist part can be done by entering this in a terminal:

echo \ '<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?><!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">KeepAliveLabelnet.ihar der.shareitunesProgramArgumentsdns-sd-PLocal iTunes_daap._tcplocal3689localhost.local.127.0.0.1Arbitra ry Text Record' \ > ~/Library/LaunchAgents/net.iharder.shareitunes.plist;

launchctl load ~/Library/LaunchAgents/net.iharder.shareitunes.plist

Paste to terminal, paste to file, what's the difference, really?

cat <<-EOF >~/Library/LaunchAgents/net.iharder.shareitunes.plist
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
<plist version="1.0">
<dict>
  <key>KeepAlive</key>
  <true/>
  <key>Label</key>
  <string>net.iharder.shareitunes</string>
  <key>ProgramArguments</key>
  <array>
    <string>dns-sd</string>
    <string>-P</string>
    <string>Local iTunes</string>
    <string>_daap._tcp</string>
    <string>local</string>
    <string>3689</string>
    <string>localhost.local.</string>
    <string>127.0.0.1</string>
    <string>Arbitrary Text Record</string>
  </array>
</dict>
</plist>
EOF
Or system-wide with
sudo cat <<-EOF >/Library/LaunchAgents/net.iharder.shareitunes.plist
...

Paste to terminal is one step.

Finding the folder, creating the file, pasting, and saving it is 3-4 steps depending on how you count them. Then you have to paste the launched line in the terminal anyway. Knowing how to even go to the Library folder, and how to make plain text files are hurdles that a lot of Mac users might not be well versed in.

I do like your EOF file format though. If I were re-submitting the hint, that's the method I'd propose.
