How to use 🚀

1) Open current directory from toolbar

run

2) Open selected folder or file from Toolbar

run2

3) Set default terminal

You are asked to set the default terminal to open after first launch.

selector

The selection box will not appear after you have set the default terminal. If you want to reset the default terminal, please enter the following command in the terminal. Then just run the application again.

For version 0.3.0 and above:

defaults remove wang.jianing.OpenInTerminal-Lite OIT_TerminalBundleIdentifier

For version 0.2.0:

defaults remove wang.jianing.OpenInTerminal OIT_TerminalBundleIdentifier

4) Open in a new Tab or Window

When you are using Terminal and iTerm, you can set a default to open a new tab or window. The default is to open a new window.

For Terminal:

# Open a new Tab
defaults write wang.jianing.OpenInTerminal-Lite OIT_TerminalNewOption "tab"
# Open a new Window
defaults write wang.jianing.OpenInTerminal-Lite OIT_TerminalNewOption "window"

For iTerm:

# Open a new Tab
defaults write wang.jianing.OpenInTerminal-Lite OIT_iTermNewOption "tab"
# Open a new Window
defaults write wang.jianing.OpenInTerminal-Lite OIT_iTermNewOption "window"

For Hyper users, it is more recommended to open a new tab.

Because updates are frequent, it is recommended to manually download the latest version.

  3. Done

⚠️ macOS will ask your permissions to access Finder and Terminal (iTerm or Hyper) when you run the app for the first time. Please give the application permissions.

If you are using Dark Mode

I provided several icons along with the app in the release. You can right click on the app and select Get Info. Drag the icon to cover the default icon.
