A small shell script to give you more control over tabs in Terminal.app
Allows you to run a command to open a new tab in your current working directory or a directory you specify. Also allows for passing commands to be run immediately in the new tab.
To install TabbyTerminal, open a terminal window and run this command:
curl https://raw.github.com/adammiller/TabbyTerminal/master/install.sh | sh
As always, you should [install_script][review the install] script before you run it.
After you install, the output will prompt you to setup an alias. The rest of these instructions assume you use the
new alias as suggested in the output. It's totally up to you what command you choose; just substitute your chosen alias for
new in the usage instructions.
Tabby Terminal is flexible, and allows you to string on just about any command. If the first argument is a directory, your new terminal tab will start in that directory.
new [path] [command]
Examples of use
Run it without any arguments to open a new tab in your current working directory
Run it specifying the directory you'd like your new tab to start in
Pass it before a command you'd like to be run immediately in the new tab
new rails server
Or go for the gusto and pass a directory and a command
new django_app manage.py activate
