Augmenting defaults domain settings within Apps

Some apps have defaults domains that don’t work the same as other apps and you need to use the -app option in defaults. This option is available for most apps, and sometimes I’ll use it to specifically crawl around for a specific setting I’m looking for. But for other apps, you need to interact with them there. So let’s look at Eclipse. Here, we can do a read with -app followed by the path: defaults read -app /Applications/eclipse/ The output would be as follows:
{ NSNavLastRootDirectory = “~/smb/smb”; NSNavPanelExpandedSizeForOpenMode = “{712, 426}”; NSScrollAnimationEnabled = 0; WebKitJavaEnabled = 0; }
Now, let’s say you had a specific setting, like fixing an anti-aliasing issue: defaults write -app /Applications/eclipse/ AppleAntiAliasingThreshold 19 #thanksaloteclipseupdaters
