Based on info from http://peterdowns.com/posts/open-iterm-finder-service.html but with modified behavior and fixed to work with iTerm2 version 3 or later. It will not work with older versions of iTerm. The modified behavior is to open a new terminal window for each invocation instead of reusing an already open window. Update - The original author released a build script for the newer iTerm2 versions at https://github.com/peterldowns/iterm2-finder-tools that keeps the original behavior of reusing an open iTerm2 window.
To open iTerm2 at selected folder with keyboard shortcut
- Run Automator, select a new Service

|# OpenVPN is fairly simple since it works on OpenSSL. The OpenVPN server contains|
|# a root certificate authority that can sign sub-certificates. The certificates|
|# have very little or no information on who they belong to besides a filename|
|# and any required information. Everything else is omitted or blank.|
|# The client certificate and private key are inserted into the .ovpn file|
|# which contains some settins as well and the entire thing is then ready for|
|# run the script: python git-find-big-files.py <the branch> <file size>|
|# Example use: python git-find-big-files.py fix-remove-files 1000000 (this value equals 1 Megabyte)|
|# the Fix-remove-files specifies the branch that you are cleaning|
