OpenTerminalHere is a Toolbar Script for Mac OS X 10.1 and later. In Panther / 10.3, you put it into the sidebar at the left edge of the Finder windows.

When its icon is being clicked on in the toolbar of a given directory window, it will open up a new Terminal session with that directory as working directory, i.e. it will cd there.It's also possible to drop one or more folders or other items onto the icon. The script will open up a Terminal session in each dropped directory, and for for each non-folder item a session in the item's respective parent directory.

Great little tool. I put mine in the toolbar next to the Find thingy. I changed mine in the AppleScript Script Editor so it didn't override the default Terminal size. That was the one annoying thing about it.

Make a copy of the file, open the copy in the Script Editor. Find these two lines and comment them out, thusly:
set number of columns to terminal_columns
set number of rows to terminal_rows
--set number of columns to terminal_columns
--set number of rows to terminal_rows
Then save the script. Now inf Finder, Get Info on the original and the copy, and thieve the purdy icon.

Saves redundant typing in Terminal, especially special character substitutions. Handy little app - great job!

Neat little app/script. Does exactly what it says. I just started using it but I think it will definitely be useful.

It does, however, open 2 terminal windows when I click on it (in my sidebar) if I do not have Terminal already running.

This looks just like the thing I've been looking for, but I run into the following problem:

'Can't get «class pURL» of alias "(~/user):Library:Scripts". '

Obviously, I've substituted my user directory with (~/user). Does the fact that I'm using FileVault make a difference?
