Alfred workflow to open current Finder window in Terminal/iTerm and vice versa.

Usage

Install workflow and enter following keywords depending on what you want to achieve:

  • ft: open current Finder directory in Terminal
  • tf: open current Terminal directory in Finder
  • fi: open current Finder directory in iTerm
  • if: open current iTerm directory in Finder

Thanks to @olibob we also have Path Finder support:

  • pt: open current Path Finder directory in Terminal
  • tp: open current Terminal directory in Path Finder
  • pi: open current Path Finder directory in iTerm
  • ip: open current iTerm directory in Path Finder

In addition the search result in Alfred will show you what the action will do in its subtitle, i.e. ft:

Finder → Terminal

iTerm Compatibility

This workflow works with iTerm 3.x and 2.9.x. If you need support for 2.1.x, see the 2.1.x branch.

Known Issues

Unfortunately there seems to be a weird bug with iTerm 3.x which causes the fi keyword not to work. This bug appears to vanish after some time. So if you encounter it, you may try @hunit's suggestion.

If you even find a way to reproduce it, I'd be happy to receive your report in the corresponding issue... and may also flood you with all the ❤️ I have, like, forever.

Hat tip

This workflow was heavily inspired by ssgreg's Terminal in Finder's folder.
