comment How to hide files from Bash?
D'oh! yes you're right... I forgot that on my Mac I'm usually trying to hide Unix stuff from the window manager, not the other way 'round. Other than .DS_Store OS X doesn't leave its turds lying around, at least not in the home directory. I've corrected the question.

comment How to turn off color with `ls`?
You could also use command ls, of course, but this is a little faster.

comment How to turn off color with `ls`?
This is really the answer I was looking for, but I'll keep slm's answer as the chosen one since it handles cases of non-GNU ls, like BSD-derived versions (OS X, Solaris, and of course *BSD).

comment What is MEAN (on Ubuntu)?
Since I assumed that (unlike Ruby on Rails or something) Ubuntu is incidental--that is, MEAN does not require Ubuntu (they say "MEAN on Ubuntu" simply because they're giving you an Ubuntu VM with MEAN)--I didn't think of searching for the whole thing in quotes. But you're right, since other people were confused by the very same Digital Ocean panel button as I was, there you have it: relevant search results.
