Keyword workflow to open several SSH sessions panes in iTerm

Recommended Posts


I'm trying to do something that maybe a bit excessive, but I'll try my luck here.

In my day to day work I need to open several SSH connections to 5-7 different servers, and navigate in each server to the same place usually.

This task takes a lot of time, I need to go one by one and open each server.

I wonder if there is an option to do it all at once using Alfred workflow.

I want to write one keyword and to have this open:




Note that all panes already broadcast input to each other, so I will only need to type the password once.


Is there any way to do that?



Thanks on advance,

iTerm script or shell script?


I presume you will need an iTerm script to open the splits (unless you're using tmux).

Do you have any getting started etc? (I know this is not related directly to Alfred, but if we are already talking about this and you may have done or saw something similar)


Me, no. I don't do any iTerm scripting.
