ShellTo opens Terminal, iTerm, or iTerm2 to the current directory in Finder.

ShellTo is great for developers using Git, Mercurial, or doing any sort of development that requires running processes like Node.js, Ruby, or CoffeeScript.

Great app; just what we all need!

I'd always hoped for an app just like this where we can open a directory in Finder and click a button to open that directory in a shell. There's ONE small drawback, though. On this app's website, there's a message saying "Due to changes in Lion's Finder ShellTo has been converted into a menu bar app." We should petition Apple to revert back to the older code to make this app available in the right click menu where it's needed the most. But for the app, 5 stars!
