I have been using a Toolbar Script called “Open Terminal Here” for a while now (thanks Marc), and the one thing about it that annoyed me was that when Terminal was not running, it would start the application, and then create a second window with my path in it. I’ve fixed this, by altering the code slightly. Note that the only changes I have made are to the last function, process_item(). I have just inserted a check for if the program is running, and if it isn’t, I call the same do script, but with in window 1.
– when the toolbar script icon is clicked on run tell application “Finder” activate try set this_folder to (the target of the front window) as alias on error set this_folder to startup disk as alias end try my process_item(this_folder) end tell end run – This handler processes folders dropped onto the toolbar script icon on open these_items repeat with i from 1 to the count of these_items set this_item to item i of these_items my process_item(this_item) end repeat end open – this subroutine processes does the actual work on process_item(this_item) tell application “System Events” try get process “Terminal” tell application “Terminal” activate do script “cd “ & (quoted form of POSIX path of this_item) end tell on error – Terminal Not running, launch and run in first window. launch application “Terminal” tell application “Terminal” activate do script “cd “ & (quoted form of POSIX path of this_item) in window 1 end tell end try end tell end process_item
