What's this

A ruby script to open a new tab (or a new window) and run command in it on Mac OS X. It is modified based on the answer from tig regarding question posted at here, I Expanded its feature a bit by allowing -w option top run command in a new window.

Usage Example:

./dt ls -l
will run "ls -l" in a new tab

./dt -w top
will run command top in a new window

Notes

  • Tested with Ruby 1.8.7 on Mac OS X 10.7.2
  • I have not been able to make the script to run more than one command at once, for example ./dt "ls -l;top" won't work as expected. I will dig more into this when I know more ruby.
  • Actually I found a script for a task like this is a bit over-killed. Check out the better approach in dot_bash_profile
  • Link to the original post on my blog
You can’t perform that action at this time.
