Customer Reviews

Simple, easy, convenient, great!

This is exactly what I needed, though I didn't even know it was missing. This is such a useful RedHat Linux feature and it is even more handy in the Mac Finder Toolbar. Way to go!

(Though, now I have switched to iTerm2, I am unable to use this guy. I ended up writing an applescript to do the same thing, but I'd love it if there was an option or preference somewhere to change what terminal app it opens!) :)

works with zsh on iTerm2 even!

Works perfectly even on my highly custom shell in zsh using iTerm2. Very satisfied!

I was using another product before this that launched me into a Terminal shell using bash. Now I can have my custom shell launched.

Like the other guy said read the install instructions or else you just get defaults not your custom stuff.

Works great, does exactly what it says

Make sure you read and follow the instructions after downloading. This is not a typical application you'd launch from the Applications folder. However, once it is set up, it works brilliantly! So handy to open up a Terminal window in a specific folder in order to launch shell scripts and do other command-line stuff.
