Prior to Lion, I used to install plugins that can open a finder folder in Terminal with just 1 click.
However, with Mac OS Lion, we can now easily add a Service or a keyboard shortcut to do that!
Here is how you do it:
- Go to System Preferences > Keyboard > Keyboard Shortcuts > Services
- Enable New Terminal Tab at Folder
With that, when you are in Finder, you can right-click on a folder, go to Services, and the option to open Terminal will be there!
Optionally, you might want to assign a keyboard shortcut like I do here.
As a added bonus, let me tell you 2 other ways to open a folder:
1) Drag and drop a folder to a tab in Terminal
2) open -a Terminal /path/to/folder
That’s all to opening a path from Finder to Terminal :)
