Turn a folder into an ISO image on MacOS.

hdiutil makehybrid -o ~/image.iso ~/path/to/folder -iso -joliet

-iso - creates a ISO9660 filesystem for broader compatibility.
-joliet - removes some filename restrictions in ISO9660 and allows for some additional options like -joliet-volume-name.

Next time you want to share some things with a VirtualBox machine and can’t mount a folder give this a try.
