Setting the User File Creation Permission Mask on macOS

By default, files created on macOS in directories that can be accessed and written by everyone are created with permissions that allow for the owner to write to the file, but for other users to only read the file. This can be a problem as files created by Harmony inside the database directories that are shared over your network need to be accessible and writable by all your project collaborators.

A quick way to remedy this is to configure your machine to have a permissive user file creation mask (or umask).

NOTE: The following commands require elevated privileges. To executed them successfully, you must either be logged in as a user with root privileges, or precede each command with sudo.
