Shellsilver

Execute UNIX shell scripts from the Finder.

Overview

Shellsilver allows you to execute UNIX shell scripts from the Finder. When a file with the extension .sh is double-clicked, Shellsilver will launch, and moments later, a Terminal window will pop open executing the shell script.

Shellsilver is a Cocoa application written in Objective-C.

What's new in Shellsilver

Version 1.4: If you ask Shellsilver to open a shell script for which you don't have execute permissions, it will ask you if you want to fix those permissions. Also, lots of refinements to the code, including dialog boxes and "check for update" feature. (The dialog boxes now use the NSAlert class that doesn't work with versions of Mac OS X prior to 10.3).

Just rename your shell scripts as whatever.command and the Finder will run them when they're double-clicked.

This is totally obsolete. In later versions of OS X (e.g. the 10.10 I'm running), Finder already recognizes the .sh extension and runs double-clicked scripts from a Finder window as a shell script in Terminal.

As far as I know, Finder will execute a .command file from your home directory. Usually, what you want is to execute the shell script from its parent directory. This is what Shellsilver does.
