Applescript to launch iTerm2 Version 3+ from OS X Finder via keyboard shortcut or Toolbar


Based on info from 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 that keeps the original behavior of reusing an open iTerm2 window.

To open iTerm2 at selected folder with keyboard shortcut

  1. Run Automator, select a new Service
  2. Select Utilities -> Double click ‘Run AppleScript’
  3. Service receives selected 'folders' in ''
  4. Paste script:
# i3-get-window-criteria - Get criteria for use with i3 config commands
# To use, run this script, then click on a window.
# Output is in the format: [<name>=<value> <name>=<value> ...]
# Known problem: when WM_NAME is used as fallback for the 'title="<string>"' criterion,
# quotes in "<string>" are not escaped properly. This is a problem with the output of `xprop`,
# reported upstream:

This is a python script to generate client OpenVPN configuration files. This is based mostly on the easyrsa script and is much simpler to understand.
import os
import socket
from OpenSSL import crypto, SSL
# 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

Git this script lists the files that are larger than the size you specify. Example use: python fix-remove-files 1000000 (file size in MBs)
# run the script: python <the branch> <file size>
# Example use: python fix-remove-files 1000000 (this value equals 1 Megabyte)
# the Fix-remove-files specifies the branch that you are cleaning
