Get rid of .DS_Store files on Mac when Zipping

Teased of clients asking why you have that hidden .DS_Store in folder? Here is a quick tip on getting rid of when compressing a folder. Anyways, you're not afraid of terminal, are you?

zip -r name -x "*.DS_Store"

If you need to remove multiple files you can do this.

zip -r name -x "*.DS_Store" -x "*.svn"

That's it. Dead simple.
