Rails server/console iTerm switching

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

I have a created a workflow for quickly loading iTerm with 4 preset tabs:


1. rails server (will start automatically)

2. rails console (will start automatically)

3. prompt (an empty tab for all your bash needs)

4. rspec guard (will not start automatically)


By launching Alfred and typing 'rails' you will launch these 4 tabs.


Afterwards, you can easily switch to these tabs from anywhere by launching Alfred and typing:


1. rs

2. rc

3. prompt

4. guard


I made a blog post about this here:




Let me know what you think,
