I've been unable to find any preferences list file with the locations for the 'Favorites' list shown in the Finder sidebar. No luck from likely candidates com.apple.finder and com.apple.sidebarlists.

Is there one, such that I can edit this list with defaults?

Failing that, is there a way of managing this list via AppleScript?


Some scripts for this:

And there is a relevant github that can manage these preferences as well: https://github.com/mosen/mysides

[Edit: Seems like, due to a change with sfltool in 10.3, people are using this: https://github.com/robperc/FinderSidebarEditor ]
