As a developer, the terminal is a core part of your workflow, along with the Finder and other tools. Jumping from a Finder window to a terminal window in the same directory shouldn't be hard – in fact, it should be effortless.
TermHere is an OS X Service and Finder extension that has one job – to place a "New Terminal Here" button in the Finder toolbar and in right-click context menus. Click it, and a new terminal window will open that is immediately switched to the current directory, ready for you to work in immediately.
If you select multiple directories, each one will be opened in its own tab. If you select file(s), the directory that contains the file(s) will be used. You can also open a new terminal window from links or paths written in a document, web page, email, and other places supported by OS X's Services feature.
If you don't use OS X's built-in Terminal app, you can use the TermHere settings app to select any other app on your computer.
Tested to work with Terminal and iTerm2. Cathode and MacTerm do not support being opened by other apps.
Note: The In-App Purchase is a voluntary donation to the developer – it does not unlock features.
Thanks for the positive response to TermHere! A few new features for you:Adds a TermHere service. This means that you can now also invoke a new terminal window from each app's "Services" menu, and when right-clicking a link or path of a file/folder within a document.
Adds a keyboard shortcut – the default is Shift-Command-X. This works everywhere the shortcut does. You can change this via System Preferences » Keyboard » Shortcuts » Services.
Adds a setting that allows you to hide TermHere from context (right-click) menus in Finder.
Adds support for OS X Yosemite.
Fixes an issue causing nothing to happen if the selected terminal app is moved or deleted.
