Alfred Workflow - New Terminal Window

Alfred workflow to open a new Terminal/iTerm window in the current space. Holding the alt key, the new window will be opened in the current frontmost Finder folder.

How to use

Install the workflow and type one of the following keyword on Alfred:

iTerm

  • tw: open a new iTerm window
  • tw pressing enter together with the alt key: open the current Finder folder in a new iTerm window

The workflow will also suggest all the available profiles for iTerm.

General notes

  • Compatible with Alfred 2 and Alfred 3
  • The new window is placed in the current desktop
  • If a terminal window is open, it doesn't focus that window, but a new one will be created. If you want to focus an existing Terminal, you can just write "iTerm" or "Terminal" using Alfred.
  • Once the workflow has been imported, feel free to change the default keywords if you don't like them.
  • For high performances, the default iTerm profile will appear instantaneously, while the other will appear after some milliseconds (because that requires to read the available iTerm profiles).
