How disable blinking cursor in gnome-shell's terminal?

Using gnome-shell, I want to disable the blinking cursor in the default Terminal. Yet cannot find anything in its profile setting to toggle the behavior.

How can I achieve that? I prefer a one-liner.

As pointed out by this blog post, you can disable the blinking cursor through a subshell:

gsettings set org.gnome.Terminal.Legacy.Profile:/org/gnome/terminal/legacy/profiles:/:$(gsettings get org.gnome.Terminal.ProfilesList default | tr -d \')/ cursor-blink-mode off
