Mac Terminal Finder tip: How to open a Mac Terminal window in the current Mac Finder folder.
As a Mac OS X newbie, I don't know if there is a better way to do this, but to open a Mac Terminal window from the current Mac Finder folder, I wrote an AppleScript script. I'm new to AppleScript also, so the script is pretty simple. Here's the code:
tell application "Finder" set myWin to window 1 set thePath to (quoted form of POSIX path of (target of myWin as alias)) tell application "Terminal" activate tell window 1 do script "cd " & thePath end tell end tell end tell
When I run this script from the AppleScript menu on the Mac menubar, it opens a Mac Terminal window, and automatically places me in the same directory as the current Mac Finder folder. Sweet.
