I want to expose .htaccess is the OSX GUI UI, but not other files that should be "invisible." Any ideas?

You have failed to mention any details, like are you doing this for the OS, or a specific application, or what. Please add more detail and you might even be rewarded with an answer. – mdpc Dec 21 '12 at 17:32
I don't know how to be more specific, OSX GUI UI is the OSX GUI. I guess you could call it the Finder, does that help? – nipponese Dec 22 '12 at 4:24

It would actually surprise me if OS X has this functionality built in, but maybe you can use some third party add-on like Path Finder or TotalFinder.

I don't know if they can do it, but you can always send a feature request to the author.
