Asepsis is a small tool that can be used to prevent the creation of .DS_Store files. Asepsis instead redirects their creation into a special folder.
Asepsis provides a dynamic library that gets loaded into each process linking against the DesktopServicesPriv.framework, used by Apple to create and manipulate .DS_Store files.
All you need to do is run the installer and then restart your computer. After reboot, the operating system won't create any more .DS_Store files.
