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 an OS X 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 OS X’s Services feature.

If you don’t use OS X’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.

What's New in Version 1.1

Thanks for the positive response to TermHere! A few new features for you:

• Adds a TermHere service. This means that you can now also invoke a new terminal window from each app’s “Services” menu, and when right-clicking a link or path of a file/folder within a document.
• Adds a keyboard shortcut – the default is Shift-Command-X. This works everywhere the shortcut does. You can change this via System Preferences » Keyboard » Shortcuts » Services.
• Adds a setting that allows you to hide TermHere from context (right-click) menus in Finder.
• Adds support for OS X Yosemite.
• Fixes an issue causing nothing to happen if the selected terminal app is moved or deleted.

Customer Reviews

DOESN’T WORK with macOS Sierra

I try not to leave negative reviews, but because of the lousy response I got from the developer about this app not working on macOS Sierra well over a month after its release, I’m leaving this bad review. Their website is lited here on this app lising, but it tells us absolutely nothing about the planned update coming to make this work with Sierra. So, if you paid the “thank you” in app purchase like I did, you’ve been cheated out of your money. The developer told me that they posted something on Reddit, and they tweeted an announcement. NOT GOOD ENOUGH. Not everyone visits Reddit, and I don’t live on Twitter like a lot of other people do. I have a life! Reddit and Twitter are not appropriate places to announce anything unless you also post on your website. Why provide the link to the website if it doesn’t include any information about the product? When this app worked, it was great, but until it is updated to support macOS Sierra, it’s totally useless. It’s just eating up space on my SSD. The developer should learn how to answer customer questions, and they should learn to get their app updated to support the latest macOS on time rather than sit and wait. macOS Sierra has been out over a month. There is no excuse for this.

Broken in Sierra

Sadly the developer hasnt even taken the time to update the description to indicate as much, and or indicate if/when a new version is coming. Otherwise was a usefyke tool

Once did the job, but is worthless on macOS Sierra

Worked well in the past, but does not work with Sierra. If you have upgraded (or plan to upgrade), don’t bother.
