Best way to transfer files to and from Raspberry Pi using Mac

I've been messing about with scp and ftp and now have stumped across a really happy solution for my Mac.

As I use Pycharm to develop my python files it is handy to have a method that uses finder to manage the files. Hard-core folks might be happiest with emacs and scp etc.

So, on the Raspberry Pi. run:
apt-get install netatalk

Then on the Mac in a terminal:

open afp:// 
replace the above ip address with that of your Raspberry Pi.

This will install Apple talk protocol onto the Pi which means that the Pi can appear in the Finder.
