OS X Finder open in path shortcuts for various Apps (ITerm2, Sublime Text 2, Vim)


While using Finder app a lot of times I need to open a terminal in the current path. Yes you can get info of the folder you are in, select path and then launch terminal and past the path... (sloooooow) :(

Luckily I found a neat useful app to open Terminal app in finders path. Since I am ITerm fan I tried to dig out more and found a script that can launch ITerm in path as well. You can find it here.

In order to make the use of this you will need to create application with the help of Automator. Just paste it to automator, click save and voila or download the apps I already bundled.

There are couple of more apps that I like using it this way so I created few more scripts and bundled apps for it:

  • ITerm 2
  • Sublime Text 2
  • MacVim
  • Vim
And here is how to install these sweeties:

  1. Download source code from bitbucket project (or clone it)
  2. Select apps you want and move application files to your Applications folder (e.g. /Applications)
  3.  Then pick up the application icon and drag it to finders toolbar
  4. There you go.. all set up.. enjoy!
Go ahead fork me up and add apps that you like using as well.

Update 2013/03/20:
Source code along with binaries available now on github as well
