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 a macOS 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 macOS’s Services feature.

If you don’t use macOS’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.

Supports: macOS 10.10 Yosemite and newer.

On macOS Sierra, apps other than Terminal and iTerm2 currently do not open. We believe this is an issue with macOS and are investigating a workaround.
