Transmit is my FTP/SFTP client of choice. By default, Transmit hides hidden/invisible/system files. As a web designer, it useful to show hidden or system files by default when working with platforms such as Wordpress (.htaccess, anyone?).

1

Open Transmit

Navigate to Applications > Transmit.app.

2

Connect to a Server

You'll need to be connected to a server to access the full View context menu mentioned below. Any server will do.

3

Enable Invisible Files

With the Transmit window active, navigate to View > Show Invisible Files. By selecting this menu item, invisible files are now shown in Transmit.
