Workflow to Open Terminal and Set Working Directory


Recommended Posts

As a new Powerpack user, I've been downloading several great workflows that I'm already using many times a day.  However, a workflow I couldn't find is one that opens a terminal window and sets the current working directory based the results of an Alfred query.

 

So I created my own and I'm sharing it here in case others find it useful.

 

What it Does:

Opens a new terminal window and sets thw current working directory based on an Alfred query that only considers folder names.

Dependencies or System Modifications:

None

Great idea.

 

There's a bug in the code, however:

 



do script "cd " & q


 

breaks if there's a space in the directory path. It should be:

 



do script "cd " & quoted form of q


 

I changed mine to read:

 



do script "cd " & quoted form of q & "; clear"


 

so that the cd command is not visible in the terminal.
