Prevent multiple tabs opening in v3.0.6 #26


Unfortunately as many people will know, when iTerm's Applescript functionality changes it can often break integration with Alfred

This repository contains custom Applescripts that can be put into the Alfred --> Features --> Terminal --> Custom section to enable the correct operation of iTerm with Alfred.

Custom iTerm Applescripts for using iTerm in Alfred.

Note: the version 3 beta of iTerm is actually known as 2.9 and the 2.9 version of the iterm-alfred integration script is all ready to roll and will work for those of you using the iTerm version 3 beta (a.k.a. iTerm 2.9.something)
